iTalc client does not start on one of 3 "identical" systems

Bug Description

I have three terminal servers (LTSP) running Ubuntu 10.04.1 with iTalc installed (version 1:, packages italc-client, italc-master and libitalc). They are installed identically (at least mostly, some difference must exist...), but on one of them iTalc does not work. On the other two iTalc clients are started for every terminal.

I have no special configuration, just installed the italc packages, created the keys to be used, copied them to the appropriate key directories and changed ownership of the private keys to give the correct groups access to them. This is the same on all three servers.

I am not even able to find a log entry about a started or crashed ica process. Any help is appreciated, especially to find more information how starting of ica _exactly_ works and how to examine this.

Of the three identical systems, all using LXDE as default desktop, one needs to have ica-launcher added to /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart. The other two must not have it listed there, otherwise LXDE trys to start it and fails, retrying forever rendering the LXDE session unusable.
