when I used that approach, the bluepin script assumed, that the Xserver
on the host was called with the "-auth" argument, pointing to the
Xauthority file.

However on my system, that was not the case, so the script had to fail,
since without the xauth credentials the access to the Xserver was
denied. As a crude work-around I identified the user of the xserver and
asumed that

     1. The home directory of the users lies under /home
     2. the home directory of user x ist /home/x
     3. there is the .Xauthority file

As I wrote, it was a crude hack. So it seems it would be better to mark
bluepin deprecated, close this bug and point users to bluez-pin, which I
use now...
