Okay, but can you explain why

  # open_graph "localhost:0";;

fails on my Linux box? If I do 

  $ xhost +localhost

before starting the OCaml toplevel, it raises an exception. If not, it
causes OCaml to die with Signal 13 (SIGPIPE).

I suppose it's redundant to specify "localhost:0," but I don't see a
good reason why it shouldn't work.
