OS: Debian testing (Future Buster) xpra version client + server : Xpra gtk2 client version 2.1.2-r16903 64-bit
2017-09-19 14:47:46,728 running on Linux Debian testing buster 2017-09-19 14:47:49,137 GStreamer version 1.12.2 for Python 2.7.13 64-bit
installed from winswitch repo.
xpra --speaker=on --desktop-scaling=off --video-scaling=off --border=off --opengl=yes --exit-with-children start ssh:mars --start-child="xterm"
then start opengl application (eve online, game) with vglrun wine path/to/exe
xpra works, but the latency makes it unusable.

this is on a lan with one PC connected to router, one connected to router through 100mbit switch.
I used to use the very old 0.16 version present in the debian repo, and it worked until I had to do an update, after which it stopped working with 0.16. After that I decided to update to 2.1.2 from the winswitch repo, and never got it to work again without unusable latency.
So, I know it worked at one time with the application and virtualgl.

I'll attach the xpra info as file. below output from the bug-report tool
converting super long bug report to attachment
Does this happen with other applications or just this one? Can you give me a reproducible test case that does not involve running wine? Is the latency still bad if you attach directly on the server? (assuming that it isn't headless) Does it work any better if you use a tcp connection instead of ssh? Is the server powerful enough? Have you tried setting min-speed?
Not heard back, closing.
