GNOME flashback simply hangs when selected as a profile on Ubuntu 16.04. All the users sees is the blue background from the startup.
To test do "sudo apt install gnome-session-flashback" and add this ThinLinc profile:
Argh. gnome-flashback has special handling in Ubuntu's weird upstart redirection voodoo. We need to update tl-run-profile to do the same thing.

I can't reproduce this on a Ubuntu 16.04.3 with ThinLinc 4.8.0. Need more info to test this.

The system originally used was running 16.04.2.
upstart = 1.13.2-0ubuntu21.1
gnome-flashback = 3.18.2-1ubuntu1
Re-verified that that the problem exists on Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS installation with
ThinLinc 4.8.0, then upgraded to to Ubuntu 16.04.3 and the problem is still there.
The upstart / flashback versions before and after upgade is the same:
# dpkg -l upstart gnome-session-flashback gnome-flashback
|/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name Version Architecture Description
ii gnome-flashback 3.18.2-1ubuntu1 amd64 GNOME Flashback application
ii gnome-session-flashback 1:3.18.2-1ubuntu all GNOME Session Manager - GNOME Flashback session
ii upstart 1.13.2-0ubuntu21 amd64 event-based init daemon - essential binaries
Updated ThinLinc to build 5543 and verified that flashback session works as expected.
