[PD] pdp window on another x display

haha.. true "yuck"!

basically the reason why is that i have some patches that use pdp and  
i can't find a good way to record them.

i've tried a ton of things including pdp_rec~, pdp_rawout, a fast  
pdp_save_png_sequence, sending svideo out from one machine and  
recording on another, etc. all with less than great results.

so at this point i thought what if i let one machine do the computing  
and then view and screen record on another? maybe that will give  
better results.

thanks for the idea about gdb.
oddly, pdp_sdl isn't crashing now but it creates a long rectangular  
window and nothing appears in it.

maybe i'll go back to sending s-video out...
