RE: Starting X on a second monitor - kludge that works
Done as an extension to the -screen option. Just tack on an X
and Y position after width and height (witn -geometry format or
just space-delimited) and you're set.
ex: make an 800x600 window and move it to the 2nd monitor
XWin.exe -screen 0 800 600 1024 0
XWin.exe -screen 0 800x600+1024+0
You can still specify just a width and height, so no changes to
current scripts needed:
XWin.exe -screen 0 800 600
XWin.exe -screen 0 800x600

We'll have to see how this fits with the old -screen n WxH option.
