	Sounds like I've confused the issue again. The multidisplay
support I'm talking about is the same *process* rendering on more than
one X display at once. Why is that useful ? I dunno thats the point.

	What you're talking about is seperate processes on the same
machine running on different X displays. This is normal X behaviour
and if some apps aren't able to do it, they're broken and need to be
fixed ....

Good Luck,
