Question GNU Screen detach for X-Windows?


Hello,

I have been using GNU Screen to attach and detach console programs with success . I can detach a console program on my home computer, go to work and ssh into my home computer and reattach the console program.

Now, is there a way to do the same kind of thing with X-Windows? That is, I want to be able to detach a X-Windows program on my home computer, go to work and FreeNX into my home computer and reattach the X-Windows program.

If this is not possible, then how about detatching a X-Windows program from one X-session (DISPLAY=:0.0) and attaching it to a different X-session (DISPLAY=:1.0) on the same computer?

Thanks.

Hmm, I use FreeNX instead of VNC because it's way faster. But remote access tools aside, what about my last question:

Any ideas?
