It's quite possible that the WxWindows library that MrEd/DrScheme's
graphics is based on was never updated to support MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1
authentication. Try running it with $DISPLAY pointing to an X server
that's using simple host-based ("xhost") authentication (or none at all).
If that fixes the problem (and you really need to use MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1),
file a bug with the PLT folks: <URL:>.
[Or better, fix the WxWindows source and send them the code!]
