ssh and private resources?

I'm having trouble running a commercial application.  When I ssh
to the redhat machine that the application is installed on and
try to run it, it crashes with display errors like "X Error of
failed request: BadAccess (attempt to access private resource
denied)".  The vendor tells me that "this is because ssh does not
permit the sharing of  X resources which [their app] needs to
do."  The solution that they suggest is to set my DISPLAY
variable and do authentication with xhost or xauth, just like the
good old days.  That doesn't mesh with our local security policy,
so I'm wondering if anyone can suggest a way to get ssh to
"permit the sharing of  X resources".  Can anyone help me get
started on this?
