Is it (for the RUID, you)?

I'm pretty sure this is because this program is setuid gnubatch, but does anyone know a way to avoid having to do the xhost command (and disabling X security)?

This could be managed by separating the display access to RUID and doing the work using the permissions it gets from the SetUID bit. I don't know if this is that easy to do in the current code. Maybe Mr. Collins knows off from head (i.e. playing *UID switching for API access and user interface).

Sorry, no real help there.
