So... why does xserverrc start the server as :0 if you start it as '/
path/to/xserverrc :1' ? That sounds like a bug with the xserverrc to
me rather than startx... I would consider it a bug (or atleast
obscure, poorly defined behavior) that startx switched to using /usr/
X11/bin/X rather than ~/.xserverrc if all you did was give it command
I could obviously put in a condition to have that old behavior, but it
seems incorrect to behave that way.
Anyone have thoughts on that?
