Yes. Of course, you're right. but I was thinking of runnning gui programs
(such as gconf-editor) and wasn't thinking of using startx to do it,
so my feeble brain was expecting to have to use "ssh -X".

So much for getting old.

               But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: 
                         While we were still sinners, 
                              Christ died for us.
