When I configure xscreensaver I use the xscreensaver-demo command. This
allows you to set everything up for that user and start and stop the
xscreensaver daemon. You run this as the local user.
There is a way to cheat xhosting as root if you are not running
remotely. If you simply use "su" instead of "su -" it should keep all
the environment including the DISPLAY setup correctly. This seems to
work well for me.
Generally I do this to xhost from root to my user display.
$ xhost local:
$ su -
# export DISPLAY=:0
