I tried some more: The StartXWin and xorg-server icons come up
simultaneously as far as my eye perceives.  xterm and xemacs
icons, for jobs started by startxwin, come up later.

Once those things finish that StartXwin started, the StartXWin
icon remains, *until* I right click the xorg-server icon to
get its menu -- then the StartXWin icon goes away (presumably
xorg-server is just then perceiving the termination of StartXWin).

In hope that these various details are helpful in narrowing down
the location in the code that may be at issue -- Eliot
