Bingo! That got it Mike. And note the spacing of the command (for others 
following this thread). It has to be "nautilus --display<space>:1" Writing 
it any other way doesn't work.

Thanks, Mike. And it is interesting that Nautilus does this and other 
programs don't (or at least the ones I've tested so far).
