I've only been glancing at this thread but -- did you post your
sshd_config and ssh_config and the command line you were using?

In a previous post, you said:

You included NO output.  Was that your point?

Can you include the output from the SSH client with the
command line parameters "-v -X"?  Include the entire
output ... 

Also, can you give us the output of "echo $DISPLAY" on
the client _before_ you kick off the SSH, as well as
"echo $DISPLAY" once you've SSH'ed in (from the shell
running on the server)?
