Something like

	DISPLAY=localhost:1 fvwm &

depending a bit on your shell, and use the windowmanager of your choice
in place of fvwm.  The other possibility, of course, is that your mouse
click is not getting through for some reason.  You could display a
window on the screen using something like

	DISPLAY=:1 xterm

and see if it has the normal window manager decorations.
