It's probably complaining about not being able to open
the DISPLAY ...

Try spawning the gui from a sub-shell ...

sudo /bin/csh -c "(setenv DISPLAY machine:0.0; gui)"

I've put this into a semi-generic (I say semi-generic
because my machine is "hard-coded") alias...

rmtXsudo        sudo /bin/csh -c "(setenv DISPLAY
auu-70:0.0; !*)"

This should do the trick.
