Thanks for the info.

This will override your desktop session globally, so you may want to add this workaround to COMMANDS_WORKAROUNDS in consts.py instead. If this works, we can merge it.

in the process of patching consts.py, I realized it might be unnecessary, as the winswtich client readily shows the gnome-fallback option (see screenshot attached).

unfortunately I need the ~/.xsession file for xrdp to work properly (unrelated to winswitch).
