Note that this is only for 16-bit apps. 32-bit apps won't load gdi or
user unless the app itself imports them; unfortunately most command
lines apps import them for no good reason. The right approach would be
to delay x11drv initialization until the first gdi or user call, but
this is quite a bit of work.
