Portuguese, more likely ^_~

Even assuming that he's trying to log in multiple users with multiple X 
servers, it's unclear as to what's going wrong since he just says "it 
doesn't work."

Though... if he's just trying to run the session manager from the 
console, that certainly won't work, because the session manager doesn't 
start up the X server.  So he probably wants to try 'startxfce4' ... tho 
I don't recall if we support passing a display argument.
