I ran 3 tests and did not notice any regressions:

1. XDMCP into a RHEL 7.1 host with GDM and launch a gnome classic
session (this tests GLX)
2. SSH -Y into a Fedora 21 host (with XWin in MultiWindow mode) and
launch gnome-terminal
3. SSH -Y into a Fedora 21 host (with XWin in MultiWindow mode) and
launch Firefox 38
