Appologies... This is something I knew, but worded my statement wrong.  At the
time, I did not know the OS, or how he was starting the X server (could have
been command line)... My statement was more to explain that the -engine 1
option should not have been used.... One of those "I knew what I meant"

Anyways,  sorry... not good at getting my point across.
