Setting up the X11 tunnel is a bit complicated as sshd must create an xauth
cookie and ad it to ~/.Xauthorities. If this fails (either because xauth
was not found or some dll is not available or the like) x11 forwarding
will most likely be disabled.
Maybe ssh -v -v -v wil give you a clue what is happening.
