This was sent to me in a private e-mail rather than the list and the
person with the original question so I thought I'd pass it on:
A (generally) better solution, is to add
session optional /lib/security/pam_xauth.so
This is probably what changed between RedHat versions (since I know
there was a time where I used xhost, but don't have to any more).
