Bug#524329: openssh-server: regression - .Xauthority corrupted on systems with shared $HOME in Lenny

Package: openssh-server
Version: 1:5.1p1-5
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

The new entries layout in hosts which separate localhost and the 
entry for the hostname results in ssh corrupting .Xauthority on 
shared $HOME (for example home off NFS server).

The telltale symptom is not being able to launch any apps in KDE
after ssh-ing into another system which uses same $HOME directory.

IMO, in Lenny  "X11UseLocalhost no" should be a _REQUIRED_ option
in /etc/ssh/sshd_config

The bug is posted a number of times versus KDE or other packages
in Ubuntu, but is in fact an ssh regression caused by the change
in /etc/hosts
