Every time I run "startx", I get the following error:

xauth: (argv):1:  bad display name "hostname:0" in "remove" command

In console, before running X, when I type "xauth list", I get nothing. 
However, running X, I get the following message:

$ xauth list
gandalf/unix:0  MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1  c61e9cfb383cd82c80245d3e8374b198

I saw in man pages that xauth is a utility to control permissions. I do care 
this message because I'm thinking this is slowing the speed of X 

Is it something wrong?
