Err, why on earth would the *backend* need to talk to the X server.
Shouldn't it be sending messages to the client and then the client
making the pics? How do you plan to deal with 10 queries running
simultaneously on a server at the other side of the world. I'm not even
running an X-server on my database server...

Anyway, the database server doesn't have permissions to access the X
server, that's the error.
