Another use I discovered for this is to run an X server on the host and connect to it from the iRex. This effectively isolates slowdown from the processing speed from display slowdown, so you can figure out what problems are where. To do this, on the host:

Xephyr :1 -ac -screen 1024x768 -host-cursor

Then on the guest:

DISPLAY=192.168.200.1:1 run-parts /etc/X11/Xsession.d/

It's kinda funny seeing this GUI on my desktop :P. Also, argh, getting screen updates done efficiently and at the right time is really tough >_>
