   Using writev() gets rid of the broken pipe error and I successfully
   write my connection initiation request to the X server.

If you can prove this, then perhaps you have found a bug in the server.

   but I probably need to take a break from this for a while

Another idea is to restart X.  I remember that helped sometimes.  In
theory, failed connection attempts should not leave persistent changes
in the server state (modulo incremented counters), but it's also true
that the vast majority of client interactions are via Xlib (et al), so
there might be some shared quirks (both server and Xlib are wrong
somehow but that's OK because they are "compatibly wrong") in play.

Anyway, the point is: killing X is a good excuse to take a break.  :-D
