Do this weird kind of $DISPLAY specifications exist outside of OS X? I remember having tripped over it myself in my early days on 10.6 (or was it 10.4?), but nowadays XQuartz (thank goodness) uses a normal host:display:screen syntax.
Sadly I can't even remember if that's because I toggled some kind of setting, or because XQuartz (the standalone, not the MacPorts one) simply dropped the contrived spec.
