You do have to log out, but you don't have to restart X.  Going back to
your GDM or XDM or whatever screen and logging in again is good enough.

And yes, it's inelegant that you have to do this, but no there's no
better way.  You can test it with the "ssh localhost" trick, but you
have to log out to have it set for your session.
