I tried looking for this, but i couldn't figure out the chain that would
work. Fortunately, sawmill has a named pipe:
/tmp/.sawmill-$LOGNAME/$display named pipe.
This looks to be the ultimate way to find it, for sawfish. Looks like
it may be a hangover from the sawmill named days - something was missed?
:) (and yes, this is current, from today's login in my case)
Is the lsof, netstat, etc. way a viable way of finding the display for a
program in the general case?
