Launching gnome-control-center from terminal

When I launch gnome-control-center (with nautilus running) from a
terminal, I get this error:

andrew tornado:~$ gnome-control-center
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: XDM authorization key matches an existing client!

(nautilus:8130): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0

Now, this doesn't happen with any other application. Also, if I type in
the command lots of times (up arrow->enter->repeat :-) ) it eventually
works, which sounds like broken behaviour to me.

I don't know if this is a debian configuration issue, or a gnome issue
to file in bugzilla.


Only wimps use tape backup: _real_ men just upload their important stuff
on ftp, and let the rest of the world mirror it ;)
