X forwarding via ssh fails for some apps

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Description of problem:
Some apps are crashing with weird error messages when used remotely.
Here's what xdvi produces:
X Error of failed request: BadAtom (invalid Atom parameter)
Major opcode of failed request: 18 (X_ChangeProperty)
Atom id in failed request: 0x126
Serial number of failed request: 179
Current serial number in output stream: 181
Here's what xv produces:
X Error: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
Major Opcode: 3
Other apps (e.g., xterm) work OK. These problems never arose before
updating tp FC3.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ssh to another computer, forwarding X11
2. start one of the affected applications
3. observe the error message
Actual Results: Application starts up, then crashes.
Expected Results: Application works.
Problem seems to be on the local box, not the remote one. The apps
work fine when not forwarded.
This looks like a dup of bug 134425
Hardly recognizable as a dup of 134425 but seems to have same
workaround: using ssh -Y. Why is there nothing in the release notes
about this? And what is the config-file analogue of -Y?
