xpra start not working, and unable to connect from a mac — at Initial Version

I've just installed Xpra, and an having trouble making anything work.

Firstly on the local Machine, running Mint 17.3, I'm using xpra from the mint repo (v0.12.3).
Trying to connect locally:

$ xpra start ssh:me@mypc:100 --start-child=xterm

However, If I do it in separate stages,it works:
xpra start :10
DISPLAY=:10 xterm
xpra attach :10

If I try to connect from another machine on the network (A Mac running OS X 10.10.5), the GUI client connects and then immediately disconnects. I can't see any errors on the server log:

After a few attempts at getting things working, it seems that the display gets blocked up, and I have to start with a new display number.
