[SDL] Opening windows on different X displays (Ubuntu 12)

Separate X11 displays is very relevant, as I want to open one window on the
left screen, and one on the right using the one instance of an application.
 There is no fullscreen problem at all.

I can throw in a `export DISPLAY=:0.1` in there, but then both windows will
end up on the same X11 display.

Also, I'm use SDL2, not 1.2.
