Very likely the server does a reset after you ran xhost. Normally after the
last client disconnected from the server the server resets to get into a 
clean state for the next user. I assume the first client you started was xhost.
After xhost finished, it disconnects and the server resets. 

You can avoid this by adding the -noreset option to the xwin commandline or
by starting another client (eg a local xterm, xclock or a windowmanager) 
before you call xhost.
