RE: [Xen-devel] X under dom0

This is just a completely random thought and not really related to this thread at all... the X protocol can use shared memory in the case where the display is on the same pc as the application. What would be involved in making shared memory work with X in the case where an application running in a dom != 0 is using a display (X server) on dom0?

Don't bother with this -- I confirmed that this is the problem from
the strace log that you sent previously. I'll look into a fix.
