Started getting weird error: Connection failed. Cannot open display "default display"

Hi all,

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post a problem like this. If it's not, kindly redirect me to the right place.

The problem:
I was working last night using x2go to remote into a server. I got disconnected, and upon trying to reconnect, I started encountering the following error:

Connection failed Cannot open display "default display"

That shows up in a pop-up window whenever I try to connect to the server. In the console, I see the following text right before the error window pops up:

start new ssh connection to server: "<my server>" : "<my port>" krb:  false 

ssh connection ok 

continue normal x2go session 

Some additional info:
I can still do normal X forwarding on the server with ssh -X.
Server is running OpenSUSE 12.3.
Clients are running Ubuntu 13.04, 13.0, and OpenSUSE 12.3. I get the exact same error from all 3 client computers I've tried.

Any ideas?
