XAUTHORITY question.

Hi all,

I need some help with running X11 application (xmessage) from a process 
that stated before X11 was started.
Until now I understood that if I set the environment variable XAUTHORITY 
to the same auth file that the X process is using I will be OK without 
using xhost command. Recently (upgraded from a badly patched RedHat 9 to 
Gentoo) this environment variable setting stopped working.
It seems to me I do not understand the XAUTHORITY mechanism at all.
