I've integrated Lothar's patch into run2/checkX (along with some other

and let me know if it fixes your problems with checkX.

But the new behavior of the timeout option (my problem #1) works fine,
with one caveat: If I start the X server with startxwin.bat, it
immediately exits and claims that a server is already running. This was
also reported earlier today by Jim Reisert:

Not quite: It seems that report says that the internal multiwindow-mode window manager claims another window manager is running (although it's difficult to be absolutely sure as the exact error message isn't reported :-))

Could it be that checkX is tricking XWin into thinking that a different
X server is running? (I have no idea how XWin decides whether an X
server is running, so this may or may not be plausible.) Strangely, the
problem doesn't occur if I use instead of startxwin.bat.
