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"?
