Problems with xsession and Wine/WoW

Hello I am trying to run World of Warcraft on a second display to gain fps on my old nvidia card. I am trying to use this script to launch the game.

export WOW_PATH=~/".wine/drive_c/Program Files/World of Warcraft" # Installation path
exec xinit -- :2 &   # Launch on a new X session on display 2
cd "${WOW_PATH}"        # Goto WoW dir 
sleep 2
DISPLAY=:2 exec `wine WoW.exe` # Launches WoW[/

I think this is the relevant error that I could find in Xorg.log
AUDIT: Thu Nov 29 22:33:00 2007: 5249 X: client 1 rejected from local host (uid 501)

Does anyone have any ideas? Looks like a permission problem, but how do I set up permissions on a second xsession that the above script launches? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I am using Pclinuxos nad I have now managed too kill my xserver twice by trying to troubleshoot the problem
