There's also VNC, which allows you to see another machine's X on the one
you're working on.  Depending on how you start it up you can either have
a clone of its current screen, or get another fresh login.  Obviously,
the first option is what you'd want, and I seem to recall that you could
do that by firing up the VNC server process on the machine that you want
share its display, in the current login.

i.e. While you're using B, start a VNC server on it.  Then use a VNC
client on A.
