Well this bugs me for too long now, so i'm asking for some input: when I launch an SDL application from a remote login shell, SDL's video backend system cannot be initialized, it always fails.

Is there a reason for that and even better something i can do to workaround this problem? It really makes dev'ing kind of annoying.
