FreeBSD eskimo.tundraware.com 4.11-STABLE FreeBSD 4.11-STABLE #40: Fri Jun 15 21:36:51 CDT 2007 toor at eskimo.tundraware.com:/usr/obj/usr1/src/sys/ESKIMO i386
I realize 4.x is not supported any longer, but a change seems to have crept in after the 4.x EOL that breaks things it should not on previously stable systems:
Attempting to ssh into the 4.11-STABLE system works, but X tunneling does NOT.
This turns out to be a problem because sshd is looking for xauth in /bin
rather than /usr/X11R6/bin/xauth.
The dirty fix here is ln -s /usr/X11R6/bin/xauth /bin/xauth but it would be nice if the code were to revert back to correctly looking for xauth as it has historically.
