[Vserver] X tunnelling through ssh not working

Using a dapper guest (under a dapper host), I can't get "ssh -X" working.

I've read this: http://linux-vserver.org/Vservers+and+X, and I've read
this: http://list.linux-vserver.org/archive/vserver/msg00982.html.

Relevant config snippet:

X11Forwarding yes
X11DisplayOffset 10
X11UseLocalhost no

But it doesn't work:

tony@argon:~$ ssh -X tony@
tony@'s password:
Debian GNU/Linux (dapper/i686) mythtv.home
Last login: Fri Apr 21 00:15:37 2006 from
tony@mythtv:~$ echo $DISPLAY


I've restarted the service, I've even rebooted the vserver guest. I've
created other users and tried them. No difference. If I ssh into the
vserver *host*, $DISPLAY is good.

Any clues?
