xemacs still doesn't open in AS2 last time I checked.  I thought it might
based on it going to a desktop that I didn't have visible, but even after
modifying the as database, it still doesn't show up.  I know that xemacs
specifies geometry kind of oddly (geometry means characters not pixels), and
am curious if that is causing an issue.
