Description of problem:

I run X on two different VTs on my system so that I can use
different screen resolutions.  When I login on the second screen
(after previously logging in on the first screen), 
a dialog message pops up warning that I have already logged in and
asking me to confirm that I really want to login again.

what's wrong with logging in twice on two different screens?
