First make sure that the sshd_config file on the server machine
has ``X11Forwarding yes'' set.
You should then be able to handle x11 using ``ssh -Y command''
instead of the old ``ssh -X command''.
If you want to be able to do this without requiring the ``-Y''
option, add ``ForwardX11Trusted yes'' to the ssh_config file on
the remote machine.
