Default Gnome 3 child process inheritance problems Number 2

palimpsest doesn't ask for root password so while it runs it is useless.

Switching a terminal window to a*root terminal with su -

Attempting to start any gui program gives a sequence-
----------------
There are multiple lines

*No protocol specified

ending with

Display localhost:0.0 unavailable
The environment variable $DISPLAY*in the child terminal session*has
localhost:0.0


Tried variations on the DISPLAY setting :0.0, :0, localhost:0 *but doesn't help.

Ideas?

New Data--

Starting a child terminal window with sudo allows gui programs to find the
display.

Child gui programs*requiring privilege started directly with sudo work as well.
*
What would this be filed against in Bugzilla?
