Thanks for making a tutorial!

One question:
Why are you forcing XDisplay to be null?
If it's available, then it would grant some extra functionalities.

1. Forcing XDisplay null stops these random crashes at start up:

It is not just an Esenthel problem?

2. Reverting the engine changes and rebuilding the engine->basicapp and trying to run it on a truly headless server outputs:

3. The goal is a "console" application so force it to run as such even when XDisplay is available to make testing more accurate even if the building/running environment has an XDisplay.

This should help with Sampler Error:

I don't know what's the problem with the sequence number stuff.

Nice, now apps built by the unmodified engine run on headless servers smile
