startx has this dumb behavior where it will silently ignore any arguments it
doesn't recognize. To actually pass that option on to the X server, you have to
startx -- -ignoreABI
Yes, that's a space, two dashes, another space, and then another dash.

Does it work? We have a policy of trying to support an ABI but not actually
marking it supported without -ignoreABI until after it has been declared frozen
by the X.org release manager.
