As of openssh 3.9, ssh has spilt X11 forwarding into two types, normal X11 forwarding and trusted X11 forwarding.  The old ssh -X behavoir is now normal X11 forwarding and won't allow any trusted X11 operations.

This breaks displaying java apps remotely, like bugster and suntea.  So, where I used to be able to ssh into a remote box and run a java application, with the new ssh, I have to enable TrustedX11 forwarding which really shouldn't be necessary.

EVALUATION This is very unlikely an AWT bug. We don't "do" any trusted operations, we just use X11. Please provide the examples of possible operations that require trusted forwarding if you can, or ssh logs that show what operations are denied. Also, please provide the information about Java version in use. Also check previous version - do they work? ###@###.### 11/1/04 12:19 GMT
