Well the one that "represents the X applications" *is* the X server.
With the way things are in git, it's behaving like it was before
2.1.1. putting the app in the dock and clicking it launches a new
xterm and a new icon represents the server. I'm actually fine with
that, but I don't know how others will react.
As it is, though, I believe disabling launchd support will still cause
the 10.4 behavior.
I know vmware does some weird hackery with .apps that cause it to
"just work" as expected. I think we should just try putting as much
of x11-exec and server_main() functionality into xinit and actually
use that to start Xquartz (which loads its resources rather than
grabbing them from X11.app with some weird argv and fork()ing hacks).
What are peoples' thoughts?
