Sorry, I didn't have time to look at the source code in the near future.
But it is not necessary for all jobs to have a X display to run.  In the
image viewer paul I use some ImLib-procedures also in batch-mode.  May
be you have a look at it.  Of course you can ask me for problems with
paul or how to solve certain tasks in batchmode.  Definitely loading
and saving files doesn't require an X display and this might be what
you want.

Kind regards
