problems with xvfb

Hello All:

There are a couple of packages that I am specifically interested in (libtk-pod-perl for example), which open an xterm or other X-window during their tests. In order for these to be able to build in pbuilder environment where there is no access to a graphics screen, the xvfb program is used to simulate a frame buffer. In etch, this also required a Build-Depends on xbase-clients to function.

Recently, the packages in xbase-clients have been split into individual packages and so the test suites are failing. I am in the process of figuring out which components of the old xbase-clients were necessary to have the test succeed but it is tedious. Has anyone run across this? It would save me a lot of time.
