You're right. Don't do this. I don't care how unimportant your box is,
sloppy behaviour is still sloppy behaviour.

Also, don't allow ssh as root.

I'd like to be able to start an X session as root too. When I try
that, I get some ancient X desktop rather than the gnome desktop user
can log into.

Don't do this either.


1) Check your sshd_config
2) You can change your root GUI from the login screen.
3) use ssh -vv to get some debugging information.
