[PLUG] X Forwarding Problem - Mostly Solved

Stephen, sorry, my last post wasn't clear...  <sigh>

Yes, I had set X11Forwarding on in sshd_config.  
No, I had not ensured xauth was loaded in the remote.

I loaded xauth, and it now works for my Debian remote computers.   Thanks!

Now, if I could just get my Gentoo remotes systems to do the same thing (and 
yes, xauth is loaded on them).
