Problems with meta characters on Mac client

Hi,

I can't seem to figure out how to make x2goclient send characters such as | (pipe) and <at> to my terminalserver, when connected from a Mac client. It works fine from a Linux client.

My terminalserver is running XFCE on Ubuntu with latest x2goserver and x2goclient 4.0.1.0 on OSX 10.8 with danish keyboard layout. I have tried changing layouts in the XFCE settings, but that just results in all keyboard input being scrambled around. When I set it back to "system standard" most keys work correctly, except stuff that requires meta-keys. Pipe on danish Mac is alt+i, which logically just produces the alt+i effect in XFCE. <at> is alt+' (next to enter) on a danish mac keyboard. This produces nothing in XFCE. Any hints for how to at least be able to produce those characters in an x2goclient session?

Even better would of course be a full keyboard-solution for Mac-users, but that might be tough, given the fundamental differences between PC and Mac keyboards :)
