I just tried that on my sarge system., whose ssh documentation does
mention ssh.  But in the new shell
  env did not give me an entry for DISPLAY
  emacs opened in text mode
  xjig said
    can't open display ''
Evidently, something more is needed than just ssh -X localhost.
some additional package maybe?
