immediately afterwards it runs xpra list to parse the value that should be
assigned to $DISPLAY.
It's always(?) the case, that xpra list does not show the just started
instance but prints an empty list.
Do you consider this a bug? Maybe you could add an option to xpra start that
it should only return once everything is set up so that xpra list finds the
While I'm at it: It would be nice to have a shell parsable output of xpra
list, e.g. separated by tabs without indentation.
