Re: remote X server

  I have had a problem a couple of time, while using a
windoz X server (X-Deep 32)  That the decorations
(arrows and X and - etc in teh title bar) disappear
and I loose control of the session.  I runn teh
Xsession full screen.  I am using AS 1.8.1 on RedHat
6.1.  I thought I'd be clever and kill AS and then
restart AS hoping to keep all my sessions alive.  Well
normal kill would not kill it, so I did kill -9 on AS.
 That did it, but when I went to restart AS it said it
could not start because another windows manager was
already running.  I assume this is because AS could
not clean up after itself with a kill -9.  

My question is, well I have two.  First, any
suggestions on how to bring my X session back under
control.  Two, how can I do a restart session with out
the GUI working?  ie from the command line?  Opps, and
third, how does a window manager know if another
window manager is running?

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.
