There is this command that I tend to like, to be run in a trusted
environment only (but using DISPLAY and xhost means that your network
is already trusted): xrsh. It connects using the same
rules/permissions as rsh, but it also exports the DISPLAY, and it
leaves no process waiting on the machine where you executed xrsh.
