VS Code not working on Ubuntu when connected using X2Go

As title, hit this issue yesterday. There is a workaround by following steps:

linkirin@trusty:~$ sudo -i
root@trusty:~# cd /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
root@trusty:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu# cp libxcb.so.1.1.0 libxcb.so.1.1.0code
root@trusty:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu# sed -i 's/BIG-REQUESTS/_IG-REQUESTS/' libxcb.so.1.1.0code
root@trusty:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu# ll libxcb.so*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     15 Jan 15  2014 libxcb.so.1 -> libxcb.so.1.1.0
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 125392 Jan 15  2014 libxcb.so.1.1.0
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 125392 Oct 28 15:27 libxcb.so.1.1.0code
root@trusty:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu# rm libxcb.so.1 && ln -s libxcb.so.1.1.0code libxcb.so.1
root@trusty:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu# ll libxcb.so*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     19 Oct 28 15:29 libxcb.so.1 -> libxcb.so.1.1.0code
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 125392 Jan 15  2014 libxcb.so.1.1.0
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 125392 Oct 28 15:27 libxcb.so.1.1.0code
