Just some more info that I've found by using strace.

Running 'displayconfig' and 'sudo displayconfg' on breezy both 
use /home/sbe/.Xauthority. But doing 'displayconfig' on dapper 
uses /home/sbe/.Xauthority while 'sudo displayconfg' tries to use 

My python code uses the C function XOpenDisplay() to open the X display.
