Third party packages are plagued with these sorts of issues.

And if you are going to be rebuilding packages yourself, please make
sure to mention that fact, it will save us all time.

"exit-with-client" is not honoured by the proxy server, otherwise it
would be impossible to use it more than once.

What you want is to enable "exit-with-client" for the new session you
are starting. (and you're not specifying how you're doing that - so I
can't really help with that)

They should all be terminated with the xpra server if you use
