[Bug-mit-scheme] x11 graphics doesn't quite work.

This matters to me, since I use MIT/GNU Scheme for teaching.
Here is a transcript of bad behavior.  I installed the 10.1.4
system on my Ubuntu 16.04 laptop using the standard instructions
published on the GNU web page.  I am running under EMACS.

The first thing to notice is that I had to load the x11-screen option.
This is OK, but even after that, I had to (import-x11), which is not in
the manual.  That is an odd thing to need, given that the x11 type is
specified in the reference manual.

But, accepting that, I still had bad results.  Apparently
graphics-set-clip-rectangle and graphics-coordinate-limits both lose
badly.  Please fix x11 graphics.  I need it!
