When I use the manager, I cannot get the graphical window to be displayed. What is going on, the client seems to be running just fine ?

First of all, I\'m no Apple Mac expert, however, in testing the manager I came across these issues;

be sure that the DISPLAY environment variable is set correct and run the client, and the manager, as the same user also being the owner of the display itself.

This usually seems to be the source of the problem. I also know that there are some issues with the screensaver on the Mac. Google for it and get stuck in some heavy Mac specific X11 / screensaver issues I don\'t even understand.
