But if the name service is responsible for resolving CORBA stuff, what does
that have to do with X?  ...or is there more that the name service does that
I don't know about (which is quite possible).

It doesn't make any difference.  You are connecting to the same X server, it
just takes a different path to get there.  To be sure I tested with just
plain ol' telnet, and it still doesn't work.

Is there someone in the readership that does?
