Xnest access

I can launch programs using the main X server just fine. However, I
cannot use a second server, such as Xnest.

I fire up Xnest like so:

[root charlesc jhereg]# Xnest :1 &
[1] 15263
[root charlesc jhereg]# Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID/, removing from list!

When I try to use it, I get this:

[ccurley charlesc ccurley]$ xterm -display :1 &
[1] 15271
[ccurley charlesc ccurley]$ Xlib: connection to ":1.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

xterm Xt error: Can't open display: :1

Is the font path problem above related? How do you sepcify a font
path? Xnest does not appear to use XF86Config.

Also, is there a way to shut down Xnest that does not leave the lock
file and socket behind?
