It is an issue how the xserver handles untrusted clients. Until openssh
3.8 all clients forwarded by ssh were trusted by default. Now they are
untrusted by default.

I have no complete overview what the X11 Security Extension works and
which functions are prohibited but I'll take a look and try to match
this with the described error pattern.

Stay tuned.
