I was planning to do the same to the x11 tabsheet but wasn't sure if people 
actually needed to be able to specify these options per-app.  Unless there is 
a good reason, like there can be with dlls, global settings seem the best for 
that tab.  If people think this is necessary I'll take a look at it ;-)
