this sounds a bit to complicated to me.

start pd like normal
create the gemwindow on "another" display with an argument to the 
create-message: [create localhost:0.1(

depends on your hardware (vga-beam, tv-beam)

if you use "dimen" to set the dimension, fullscreen will try to set this 
resolution first and falls back to the current resolution of your 
display if it doesn't succeed:

e.g. [dimen 640 480, fullscreen 1, create( sets the resolution of the 
display to 640x480 (even if the XF86Config says 1024x768) and creates 
the window at this resolution
e.g. [dimen 500 500, fullscreen 1, create( will most likely fail to set 
the display resolution to 500x500 and thus the windows will have a 
resolution of 1024x768
