in an odd way.  Scripts called via the Applications menu start but 
bundles that contain the same scripts and which are in the dock get the 
wrong display (the one with the :0.0 rather than the :0).  I just did an 
echo $DISPLAY in two xterms and found that both had DISPLAY as :4.0. 
Console messages complain that there is no
