I think we never figured out the real source of the problem, but it
seems that XOpenDisplay will fail if any interrupt occurs while it's
waiting for a response from the server. We "solved" the problem by
blocking signals around the call. [Self gets 50 or so timer
interrupts / sec, so any connection taking longer than that has a hard
time getting established...] Let me know if you need more details.
In case there are any X hackers out there who really know what's going
on, we'd certainly appreciate any suggestions for a real fix.
