I don't understand this.

I open one xterm as root. And maybe I move that to the top left of
screen to help me remember which is which.

Then I do:
( xterm & )

in that xterm window to open another xterm, with no additional
password required.

Then I may need to start GUI tools, like for instance, gparted. I
need them to run as root, so again, password. This is another
nuisance.

So I do:
( gparted & )
in that first xterm window, and I get the gparted GUI with no
additional password required.
