Wait, that was flwm, not fluxbox. I could not use fluxbox because it
would not start:

Doing the following from a terminal in either screen 0 or screen
1 -- with no window manager running on screen 1:

  diamond:~> fluxbox --display :0.1
  led to read: session.tabs
  Setting default value
  Failed to load groupfile: 
  BScreen::BScreen: an error occured while querying the X server.
          another window manager already running on display :0.1.
  Fluxbox::Fluxbox: no managable screens found, aborting.
  Fluxbox: Unknown error.

  diamond:~> fluxbox -version
  Fluxbox 0.1.14 : (c) 2001-2002 Henrik Kinnunen 

Any clue what this is all about?
