If your VM has the bug, then indeed -xshm will make no difference.
Once it's fixed, though, there should be a big difference in the
simple "[Display forceToScreen] timeToRun".

Well, not quite -- I believe it is actually available on Linux/ppc. But if

fail. It's a cheesy bug, and one fix is described on the patches page.
