Erratum :

I remember having to do something like use one object of each class for
the purpose of doing something, but I don't quite remember what it was,
and I'm pretty sure it was in 2004 or 2005. The PDP currently on my
machine can open multiple [pdp_glx] windows and [pdp_xv] windows.

Now that I think of it, it probably was instead something to do with
multi-screen video cards that would only allow GL on the first screen.
