Um, I'm not 100% sure, but the change isn't permanent.
It seems that the setting done by xauth becomes invalid
after the root logs out:
$ su -
# xauth merge ~username/.Xauthority
# export DISPLAY
. . .
Then, the xauth setting for the root is gone.
("$" is the shell prompt as a normal user
and "#" is the root's prompt.)
This is based on my experience. A more convincing
answer would require some reading.
