I think pdp_yqt is pretty buggy.  Use pdp_qt or pdp_qt~ for sound maybe.

There is a bug report about this, please add to it any details of  
your setup.  PDP always starts X11 for me.

If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of  
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an  
idea, which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps  
it to himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into  
the possession of everyone, and the receiver cannot dispossess  
himself of it.            - Thomas Jefferson
