That might depend on how you define "no access" ;-) You can issue
SET DISPLAY/CREATE within a batch job. You'd only need an X terminal
which would accept a connection from IDL. Using /TRANSPORT=TCPIP
would mean you wouldn't have to worry about username checking - just
the node on which the batch queue is running.
