Description of problem:
After the most recent up2date, I have a problem with x11 tunnelling over ssh.
If I login using:
ssh -C -Y <key file> -f "$user@$host" "xterm &"
I get the following error:
xterm Xt error: Can't open display: localhost:12.0
If logged in as:
ssh -C -Y <key file> -f "$user@$host" "xterm"
Backgrounding the login job is to get around limitations in older openssh versions on other systems.
This did not happen before the latest up2date. I run up2date from a terminal started this way and
afterwards it fails.
