Not really.

I do know however that Astro needs an X-server even when running in batch mode, something 
it starts by itself. My guess is that it has calls to X here and there and rather than 
fixing the tool the just start an Xserver as a sort of graphical equivalence to /dev/null. 
There is at least the interesting binary "NullXServer" in the Astro installation.
Perhaps that could be a solution?
