Ryan Schmidt noticed when gv is run when there is no X server running (e.g. on Mac OS X Tiger when X11.app is not open), it takes 6 seconds to tell me anything. For

$ time gv --version
gv 3.6.6

real 0m6.013s
user 0m0.003s
sys 0m0.009s
$ time gv
gv: Unable to open the display.

real 0m6.013s
user 0m0.003s
sys 0m0.009s

If I run those commands when X11.app is open, they react instantly.

This should be caused by the timeout of X11 on MacOS, but I currently have no idea what resp. should can be done.
