RE: Bug in remote gui app execution via ssh

Hi Larry

I would appreciate if you can tell if there is any plan to fix this?

Is there any update on this feature? I downgraded to 5.6p1, still it did not work. I heavily depended on this feature. I tried in XP, Vista and Windows 7. Is there any plan to fix this in upcoming release?

You might try downgrading to 5.6p1 if you have not done so already.
