I couldn't get it to work with Mavericks, but that could've been because I
hadn't configured it in my SSH configs.

Nope; I had ForwardAgent and ForwardX11 set back then, along with
X11Forwarding in the server. How did you get it to work with Mavericks?
I've lost all my notes back when I had it working work->home, but I dimly
recall that it involved something to to with an SSH agent (and I've loaned
out my SSH O'Reilly book).

I get the same thing. It would be nice to have this working, so I could
run "xload" in my FreeBSD server, have a new Firefox tab opened on my Mac
when reading remote mail, etc.
PS: Please reply to the list and not to me; most of Gmail's mail servers
are listed on various DNSBLs and they don't care, and I'm getting tired of
having to whitelist Gmail users all the time (see my anti-Gmail page).
