The only thing that worked for me was to set (as the user who started X)
After this I can run X apps as root.
Note that the following did not have any effect:
From my /etc/hosts:
127.0.0.1 localhost Marius
Anyway, now I found a way that works, although I still cannot selectively
grant access to X.
Thanks for the help!
