I'm running this program to give myself multiple Windows (7) desktops:

  Desktops 1.01

I started the Cygwin X server on the 1st desktop, but then tried to
open a new Xterm from the 2nd desktop.  It of course landed on the
first one.

Is there any way for the X server to recognize these as four different
desktops, so I could, for example, open an Xterm explicitly on a given
desktop, for example:

   xterm -display localhost:0.1
