This is racy, we probably should do something better here.  Might need a
bit of code to do something like:

static void sighandler(int signo) {

int main() {
  signal(SIGUSR1, sighandler);
  pid = fork();
  if (pid < 0)
  if (pid) {
    return 0;
  } else {
    signal(SIGUSR1, SIG_IGN);

to be sure not to start clients before X is ready to accept connections.
Or just a sleep in the shell script, but that's still racy…

Not sure we need to keep -retro there (at least for the release images),
and we should probably not start X if DEBIAN_FRONTEND is not gtk.
