Re: SSH X11 forwarding

:When I try to ssh to a host using X fowarding, and I try running X 
:applications such as emacs,
:the applications are abruptly closed. I get errors like:
:X Error of failed request:  BadAccess (attempt to access private 
:resource denied)
:I installed OpenSSH 3.6.1 from ports, and everything works fine. 
:Although this could be an issue with the host,
:is there a specific reason that OpenSSH 3.9 is included with the system 
:instead of a 3.6?

    Well, generally speaking more recent version are more desireable, if only
    from a security perspective.  We have had a few bug reports of some
    oddness occuring with ssh so its possible that there is a compatibility
    issue between the newer ssh's and older ones, but we aren't going to
    revert back to an older version.

    I have no problems running xemacs over an ssh link between my workstation
    and my test box, but both are running 3.9.  So it seems likely that
    there's a protocol issue between your hosts.  Unless we specified some
    build options wrong (which is quite possible), I'm not sure if there is
    much we can do about it.
