X kills su

After I exit from X windows, I no longer have the ability to su (to
root, at least). It doesn't even ask for my password - it just
immediately says "bad su from myacct to root".
If I then "exit", and immediately log back in as myacct, I am able to su
to root no problem.
I am running 5.3-STABLE, and the latest X (or very, very near it). It
happens with at least two distinct WMs (Window Maker and Fluxbox).
Any idea? Or any further information I can provide?
