I've not been, and adding it doesn't change anything. I'm not trying to start a 
server. I'm trying to alter the already running server from within the running 
server. The commands are all run on screen :0 in the instant case. Why does the 
first instance work as expected (as it has since it was KDE3 and probably KDE2 
before) without specifying a screen?

Says nothing about server options.

What is shown in is all from a single 
running instance of starttde, not some cut and paste hocus pocus.
