Also, a workaround here is to set $DISPLAY to just the end of the string

    pyanfar:735 Z$ echo $DISPLAY
    pyanfar:736 Z$ DISPLAY=:0 cssh ...

and make sure XQuartz is already running. Be aware that the :0 may be
something else, especially if your xquartz is out of date; don't just
assume it'll always be :0.
