XWin and multiple users

On a windows XP machine with cygwin-x installed, if I can start the X
server, then other windows users cannot. re-assigning ownership of
/tmp/.X11-unix/ from chesky to jake allows jake to run X when he is logged
in, but then I cannot.

The error message implies that /tmp/.X11-unix/ should be owned by root,
but there is no such user.

I'll try to subscribe to or monitor the list, but please cc me when replying.
