Open Xlock as root

I checked all the newsgroups and other site but couldn't find a solution
for my following question:

As a sysadmin of 20 Redhat5.1 machines I was always able to unlock a
screen locked by a user with my root password. Since I upgraded all
machines to Redhat6.1 and in addition using shadowed passwords this
doesn't work any more. I checked all the configuration files, added
+allowroot etc, but nothing did help.

Can anybody give me a hint? Is it due to the shadowed passwords or did
redhat change something in the configuration files??
