  1. Install Xnest;
  2. Add a test user to your system;
  3. Run a nested window GDM session (in System Tools);
  4. Login as the test user;
  5. In your own user session:
	a) open a shell
	b) change DISPLAY to the test user nested session display (eg. :20)
	c) run: gdb python
	d) inside gdb: run /foo/bar/
  6. In the test user nested session, add your test applet to the panel
  7. Logout from the test user nested session

  Perhaps test user can be == your user, I'm not sure.
