(sorry to jump in the middle here)
'sudo xfoo' doesn't work for me, either; it's the same connection
refused error (which is particularly annoying because vim complains even
when run sans GUI).
I've resorted to the 'ssh -X root@localhost' hack, too, as there's no
way for root to read my .Xauthority file -- it's on AFS. I've pretty
novice with X stuff, though, so I'd love to hear a secure way of running
GUI apps as root that Just Works (tm).
