I've got the graphics working now with one problem:
the text in the tcl displays is only partially rendered.
I think this stems from a mismatch between the 1440x900 pixels
of the display and the 1280x1024 virtual resolution that Xorg
comes up with when the display is configured.
But I'm now sold on Erlang!
