Hi Sean--

     That's the right behavior. :)  The subject image is headless, so
you won't see anything new on the display. And while the simulator is
running, the UI process of the image in which you're running it is
blocked. The simulated subject image is listening on (the real) TCP port
62982, waiting for another image to connect to it; you can see this by
checking the output of 'netstat -an' at a shell.

     thanks for trying this!
