Executables installed on a mounted partition can not connect to the X server

since I was running out of space on the drive where I have / mounted, i decided i'd install JBuilder in one of the mounted fat32 partitions to save some space. but after installing it, when I attemt to run jbuilder, i get this error message.
cii@linux:/windows/app/linux/Borland/JBuilderX/bin> ./jbuilder
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: XDM authorization key matches an existing client!
Error: Unable to process 'splash jbuilder_2005' at line 6 in configuration file'/windows/app/linux/Borland/JBuilderX/bin/jbuilder.config'.
. here's what my fstab file look like:
dev/hda5            /                    reiserfs   acl,user_xattr        1 1

/dev/cdrom           /media/cdrom         subfs      fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0
/dev/dvdrecorder     /media/dvdrecorder   subfs      fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0
/dev/fd0             /media/floppy        subfs      fs=floppyfss,procuid,nodev,nosuid,sync 0 0
I was wondering if any of you could help me out with this. I've tried fiddling around with the fstab configurations, but it only made things worse. So any help is greatly appreciated.

What happens if you execute
xhost -
to turn off the X server access control?

You may be able to just delete your .Xauthority file, then restart X which will cause it to be recreated and this might solve your problem.
