along these lines, i have a (non-debian) question -- i was just
sitting in the Sun lab, and a user came up and asked me for help -- he
couldn't open xemacs, because he was getting messages that didn't have
X permissions (or something; i didn't copy them down).  his $DISPLAY
variable was set to :0.0, and when i suggested he try logging in on
another client, it worked fine ... was this just a fluke?  huh.
