That latter version can be shortened to
 % ssh -f -l root localhost xterm
 <type root password in response to prompt>

This does the authentication, spawns the xterm with tunneling of the X 
traffic to the server, then throws the job into the background.  In
the current window you come back to your prompt as yourself.
