Mit-magic-cookie ???

Hi all,

since I updated my client to FC3 i'm getting these error
messages when I ssh to server, su to root and trying to execute
Xlib: connection to "localhost:11.0" refused by server
Xlib: Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 key
xhost: unable to open display "localhost:11.0"

Tried different things:
- delete .Xauthority
- xhost +localhost .....
But the error stays!

Can anyone tell me what these messages mean and
how to get rid of them? WHERE must I change something?
