yes, i tried it, works fine for me now - without ck-list-sessions.

i didn't debug that and don't have the machine here right now.

from my original report i would guesstimate from:
+ d=/tmp/.X11-unix
+ displaynum=0
+ getXuser
+ local plist display uid user startx pid userhome IFS
+ [ 0 ]
+ display=:0

laptop, just 1 X Session with just 1 DISPLAY. being generic probably
complicates things.
