Freenx nx server problem in Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04

After upgrading to Jaunty, I never managed to successfully connect to my desktop using NX. I use a windows computer with nomachine nx client. I always got an error like this:

Info: Proxy running in client mode with pid '1728'
Session: Starting session at 'Sat Jan 12 16:34:05 2008'.
Warning: Connected to remote version 3.0.0 with local version 3.1.0

After hours of searching the web, I concluded the problem is with the ownership and permissions of the .Xauthority file. Here’s how I fixed it:
sudo chown hydtech /home/hydtech/.Xauthority
sudo chgrp hydtech /home/hydtech/.Xauthority

and delete:
sudo rm /home/hydtech/.Xauthority-l
sudo rm /home/hydtech/.Xauthority-c

Now it works like a charm.
