Summary0000096: dotty work only when user is root

dotty work FINE when I am root, BUT when I am a NORMAL user, it outputs the following error message :
notpre.dir> dotty
graph parser: parse error near line 33
context: >>> access <<< control disabled, clients can connect from any host
dotty.lefty: giving up on dot
dotty.lefty: graph that causes dot
dotty.lefty: to fail has been saved in file
dotty.lefty: please fill out a bug report at [^]
Additional Information

[erg] When dotty sets up the dot co-process, something in Debian is printing
"access control disabled, clients can connect from any host" on that
stream, which causes the dotty parser to choke. We need to check with
someone at Debian to find out why the status message is being generated.

I had a "xhost +" in my .cshrc file.
Apparently, dotty create a new shell and call the .cshrc somewhere. If=
this call produce an output, it seems that this output is appended to
the .dot file or something like that...
So it's a bug that should be very easy to correct for you : the output
of the call to the the .cshrc should be redirected to some temporary

[erg] Based on this, it was recommended that the output of xhost be
redirected in .cshrc or, better, move the call to xhost to a one-time
X startup file. dotty runs a shell to run dot and since it can't separate
dot output from shell output on stdin, it has to rely on the shell not
producing any output on stdout.
