I'm uncertain about this. XDMCP should not be affected since there is always
a client connected (the xdm login screen or the window manager) so I doubt
I will be affected by the change *g*.

Anyway, I think exiting the xserver without any connected client is save 
except for users who expect it to be running and now file bugreports that they 
can not connect to the xserver after double-clicking the icon.

BTW: This should be handled. Double clicking the icon should _not_ silently 
stop the xserver.
