When I set the DISPLAY variable to 0:0 I get the same result as Markus
and David Koppelman. If the DISPLAY variable is either set to `X-hostname`:0.0
(that's what I always use) or localhost:0.0 (as long as we're on the X-server),
than everything's fine. David Koppelman just sent me email that it also
works for him when the DISPLAY var is set properly.

Real programmers don't comment their code.  It was
hard to write, it should be hard to understand.
