The 32-bit "pseudo-machine" still isn't *running* the the pure
64-bit app.

As you said, X is a client/server protocol, so it doesn't matter
the "bittness" of either the client or the app.  They are dis-

Now, if the OP's question really was "can a 32-bit X server run 
inside a chroot jail on an otherwise pure-64 system", then that
would have elicited a totally different response from me.  Clear 
writing is always useful.
