I'm not real clear on what you're trying to do.  "...run a xclient as 
root from a term in an another user account..."  Do you mean that you 
have two xsessions active on your box from two different users.  Or do 
you mean that you have one xsession active, you've logged into via 
console another user account, su'd to root, and now wish to display 
xcdroast from user2-su[root] on user1's X display?  Or (and most 
likely), you've logged into X.  su'd to root, and now want to start 

Assuming the latter, try this:  from your primary user and your 
favorite term; su to root,  then enter:

# xcdroast -d :0.0
