persistent DISPLAY variable

Where would it do that?  How can I find out if the queried host is at fault?

My Windows COMPUTERNAME is newhost.

I have discovered that some queried hosts work fine, others that I try to 
connect to are doing this oldhostname thing. Maybe the Unix admins have 
XDMCP on the queried hosts screwed up and it is forcing the DISPLAY variable 
to be something incorrect.

I don't think it is a problem on my side now.

I also can't swear that oldhostname is in fact an old host name for my PC. I 
can't ping oldhost from any Unix box - I don't know where that name is 
coming from.
