I was actually going to post this message as a plea for help, but as I was trying
to write it out, I've solved my problem -- let this be a lesson for people who
have reservations about "talking about their problems" ;-)
The problem was that I was migrating a project I've been working on over to
Eclipse + PyDev.
My code requires access to X11 since it can (at times) require an import of
pylab/matplotlib in order to, well, draw figures.
I was trying to set up an "External Tool" configuration to run the unittests
(via nose) that lie in my test directory, but it kept dying something fierce
before it could run them since importing pylab tried to connect to my x11 display
and it just wasn't getting it.
If you run into this problem, set up a "DISPLAY" variable in the "Environment"
tab of your "External Tool" (or Run Configuration, for that matter) with the
appropriate display value, for instance, I have:
Variable -> DISPLAY
Value -> :0.0
And it all works now.
