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"

It works.

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.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
