Why not? We really should have a proper script in /usr/bin that does

  XAUTHORITY=$(ps ax | sed -rne 's,.*/usr/bin/X .*-auth ([-/:._[:alnum:]]+).*,\1,p')

but it should make sure that it's selecting the right X server when
there are more than one running.

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
