I have heard of a problem when X is started as root and then later
started as an ordinary user. Evidently, the permissions on the files,
and directories are set for root and the regular user cannot access
them. I am not sure if that is the problem in your case; however, the
fact that X works as root might be an indication of it.

You might want to check the appropriate directory and file ownership's
and permissions.
