  I don't know about other people, but since I upgraded X11 forwarding
from my computer seems to be broken.  That is, if I connect to my computer
a dummy display is allocated and $DISPLAY it set -- but attempts to connect
to this display fail with a message about "bad authentication".

  And yes, I've turned X11 forwarding back on in /etc/ssh/ssh_config
(although I don't think it's related to this problem)


There are many of us in this old world of ours who hold that things break
about even for all of us.  I have observed, for example, that we all get
about the same amount of ice.  The rich get it in the summer and the poor
get it in the winter.
