A problem that remains is that when using sdl the sdl windows crashes
quite easily. VNC seems to do better. And I have some local/keymap
issues. In SDL I seem to have some english keymap, and I know how to
handle this with my german keyboard. On VNC I seem to have a german
keymap, but some keys are twisted. For example, but that's not all,
shift-7 should give me a backslash, but it gives a question mark. (the
key that is supposed to give me a question mark gives one, also).
A bit strange...

Hmm, and starting X with this seems also not really to work.

I guess I give up now, seems the current stable solution is defintely
using vnc or trying some other way. Will look at this in 3.0.5 or .6
again :)
