In my case, yes it does.  The resulting view from pstree is

`-sh,1614 /usr/bin/startxwin
     `-xinit,1645 /home/ht/.startxwinrc -- /usr/bin/XWin :0 -multiwindow ...
         |-XWin,1646 :0 -multiwindow -auth /home/ht/.serverauth.1614
         `-sh,1652 /home/ht/.Xclients
             |-ssh-agent,1664 /bin/env TMPDIR=/tmp /home/ht/.Xclients
             `-xterm,1665 -geometry +0+60 -ls
                     `-sh,1684 /home/ht/bin/goE -Y
                         `-ssh,1685 -Y

Compare this to the 3.1.4 result:

`-sh,2027 /usr/bin/startxwin
    `-xinit,2058 /home/ht/.startxwinrc -- /usr/bin/XWin :0 -multiwindow -auth ...
        |-XWin,2059 :0 -multiwindow -auth /home/ht/.serverauth.2027
