Here is what I do:
Start X then rxvt or xterm.
$ echo $DISPLAY
$ ls -al /usr/X11R6/bin/x2x*
-rwxr-xr-x    1 GGUEGUEN Utilisa.    22528 Oct 29 21:35
-rwxrwxrwx    1 GGUEGUEN Utilisat    36864 Nov 13 06:01
$ md5sum /usr/X11R6/bin/x2x*
de9f08c8e73913e2a2e43e6acea0c0a3 */usr/X11R6/bin/x2x-1.27-3
6f374a9dd61413acc350401b8bac720a */usr/X11R6/bin/x2x.exe
$ /usr/X11R6/bin/x2x -copyright
x2x: display names are both
$ /usr/X11R6/bin/x2x-1.27-3 -copyright

$ /usr/X11R6/bin/x2x -to xwin6:0
x2x: display names are both
$ /usr/X11R6/bin/x2x-1.27-3 -to xwin6:0
[open a small window, works ok.]

Am I the only one with this problem ?
