I think this is correct. I have never seen any other location
for .Xauthority

That is K12LTSP/LTSP specific. If another naming scheme is in use, this
will not be the case. In the Atlanta Public Schools pilot roll-out, the
thin clients are named rmXXXscYY  where XXX is the room number and YY is
a sequential counter within each room. This scheme is used so lpoptions
can be run on login to set the default printer (which uses a similar
naming scheme: rmXXXprYY).

Also the 0.0 may change is more than one X screen is running. Odds of
that are slim, but real. If the standard X session in on screen "F2" and
a rdesktop session on "F1", the screen number may be 1.0  (I'm rusty on
the counting so don't take my word on this - I _think_ rdesktop uses an
X screen.)
