I don't claim to be an expert on security, so I won't comment

Yeah, it's recommended not to run the test setup where security is a concern.

sudo -i
export DISPLAY=:0.0
export XAUTHORITY=<whatever it was set to before sudo>
qemu-kvm ...

Hopefully this helps.

Terrific, Bruce, thanks! I'll give it a try.
