how does root run a graphical prog


How come root can not run a graphical program under other user
session. Let say, I do 'su' and I try to launch gkrellm. Xterm will
produce this message:

Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: Client is not authorized to connect to Server

Everything fine if I run a console program under root. This problem
only occurs if I run a program as a root under other people session.

Please enlighten me.
