Anyway, to answer your question, you could start the X server with
-ac. (edit /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf or else xdm.conf).
Note the security implications btw (same as xhost +). You really dont
want to do this on multi-user networks, especially if there are users
like me on it who enjoy running:
while true ; do
xmessage -display $YOURDISPLAY:0.0 "xhost+ is a bad idea"
Note that xhost+ / disabling X access will also allow anyone with
access to your X server to *silently* snoop all your keystrokes.
