Interesting. I usually have access only to a 4.11 box (at least for i386)
and I've retested the plugin there with positive results. However, at the
moment I can also access a 5.4/i386 box. I was hoping that this would
have the problem, but everything has tested out correctly on it for me.
I had thought up till now that it may be xorg that is causing the problem,
but now I'm not so sure. There are some other differences I'll look into

Its not as hard as it sounds, you can probably get the information by
simply inserting a printenv in the appropriate place in the script.
