      Description

      According to https://wiki.jenkins-ci.org/display/JENKINS/Xvfb+Plugin the "Let Xvfb choose display name" requires "xserver 1.13 or newer".

      On my machine, "Xorg -version" returns:

      but Xvfb fails to start with:

          Hi,
          I've updated the wiki to state 'a recent version of xserver' without mentioning specifics. Funny thing is that -displayfd option was introduced into version 1.12.99.901 (http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/xorg/2012-July/054640.html) onward...
