When requesting X11 forwarding from an SSH server, PuTTY currently always requests a default screen number of 0. This is less than optimal for users of multiple-screen X servers, who might prefer a different default. PuTTY should probably pull the screen number off the end of cfg.x11_display and use that.

SGT, 2003-01-02: I think I've fixed this now.
