Default Gnome 3 child process inheritance problems

Starting an alternate session with ctrl-alt f2 and starting up the gui.*
startx -- :1
for alternate session.
Top level stuff launched from the menus works but starting programs from a
terminal session fails.
There are multiple lines
*No protocol specified
ending with
Display localhost:0.0 unavailable
The environment variable $DISPLAY still has localhost:0.0 not what would be
appropriate for the alternate session.
If I remember correctly it should be localhost:1.0 but setting the variable to
that doesn't work.
