sean already suggested checking permissions on xwrapper.  you might
also make sure that you don't have an extra IPC unix-domain socket
lying around; X creates one of these for running clients on the same
machine as the server.  it usually lives in /tmp somewhere:

   $ ls -ald /tmp/.X*
   -r--r--r--    1 root     tkil           11 Sep 24 09:14 /tmp/.X0-lock
   drwxrwxrwt    2 root     tkil         1024 Sep 24 09:14 /tmp/.X11-unix

it's a long shot, but this has been known to confuse later sessions,
if they didn't get removed properly.
