Obviously, some users are not allowed_users.
man Xwrapper.config says:
allowed_users = rootonly|console|anybody
Specify which users may start the X server
through the wrapper. Use rootonly to only allow root, use console to
only allow users logged into a physical console, and use anybody to
allow anybody. The default is console.
Have you set it to "anybody"?
