Bug#579186: openssh-client: Tunneled X clients slow to start

Package: openssh-client
Version: 1:5.3p1-3
Severity: normal
Tags: squeeze

Two computers on my wireless network, with working ssh public-key encryption.
>From computer 1:         ssh -X computer2         (The connection is
instantaneous)  Now within the shell running on computer2:         xterm  The
xterm takes anywhere from 20 to 30 seconds to start.  During the pause between
running "xterm" and waiting for it to appear, my outbound network activity on
computer1 is above 165 KiB/s, peaking around 260 KiB/s.
