Unix has the env SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=svp which would force headless mode.
Though I don't think macosx or windows honors that, hence the --headless

I'm not sure why e.g. the fairly simple hwpfilter test, or any of them
really, would end up triggering anything UI-related. I guess there might
be some painful-to-fix assumption somewhere that tries to create a
dialog or render some text into a drawable and want to query the
desktop-settings for the default fontoptions on the system or some such
which cascades out of control.
