It _should_ pop up.
On my Debian installation, it does not.

Ah! That wasn't clear.

On Debian, root cannot easily start X programs, and in general, this
is not exactly a bad idea. Either you have to fiddle around with
Xauthority files or whatever is needed to get root to be allowed to
run X programs, or, this is what I do, run xm create with sudo as a
normal user.
You can also use gksudo, if you want to avoid the shell completely.
