What version of Mozilla did you use? I use an autoconfigured proxy,
too, and while for a long time Mozilla would just break when I tried
to use it, some time after April of this year it started working, and
has ever since; I no longer use Netscape at all, and don't know the
answer to your question.
Your mileage, of course, may vary, but if you haven't used the newest
newest version of Mozilla, I think you should try it.

This is not an answer to your question, but you should use ssh instead
of rsh, and you can tunnel x clients through ssh, without having to
involve xhost at all.
