Description (last modified by Antoine Martin)

Allow restarting xpra to reconnect to abandoned xorg session.

There are some issues that cause xpra to crash, e.g. #2730

What I see then on xpra server host is this:

[ ~]$ xpra list
Found the following xpra sessions:
/run/user/3035/xpra:
        UNKNOWN session at :123
Re-probing unknown sessions in: /run/user/3035/xpra
        UNKNOWN session at :123 (cleaned up)

I can still see that Xorg is up as well as apps I have been running:

2230560 /usr/libexec/Xorg -noreset -novtswitch -nolisten tcp +extension GLX +extension RANDR +extension RENDER -auth /home/mj/.Xauthority -logfile /run/user/3035/xpra/Xorg.:123.log -configdir /run/user/3035/xpra/xorg.conf.d/2230559 -config /etc/xpra/xorg.conf -depth 24 :123

So if only xpra server could be restarted, find the existing Xorg session and reconnect to it, then it would mitigate problems with xpra stability.

Use:

xpra start :123 --use-display=yes

In v4, this is automatic, even over ssh: ticket:2523#comment:8.

Also xpra upgrade :123 from time to time resets the xpra server but not the X windows so it is possible to reattach with reduced memory usage
