Probably the easiest way to do this is, instead of using su/sudo, run
ssh -X localhost. It'll tunnel your X apps back over the tunnel. Not
as efficient, but it'll solve permissions problems. Or, you
can have root snag your user .Xauthority file to steal the user cookies.
Then you can just set display:0.0.
