im not sure if its the best or correct way, but i was able to run an app (not 
ddd, i dont have that on my system) as root by doing this:

(as my user)
xhost +

(then su - up to root)
xcalc -display :0

nothing else to it.  also, you might take a look at the man for xhost to see 
how to narrow down the access, because the '+' only gives you a nice 
little "you are now wide open for connections" message.
