I'm not a plex86 developer (although I am a developer), I've just been lurking 
on this list for months in hopes of trying plex86 out when it gets a bit more 
mature.  I did read your problem and can also suggest using vncserver to run 
plex86.  The CPU overutilization might still make yuor machine crawl, but if 
it is really messing X up, then here you would only mess up your VNC X 
server, leaving your main one alone.  I've used VNC to do "virtual X" for 
just this kind of situation many times.  It can be very helpful.
