I'm having weird problems with ssh and X forwarding. I have some
stuff in my login scripts to set various xkb preferences (in case I'm
not logged in via GNOME), however this now produces:
XKB extension not present on localhost:10.0
Which is confusing. My Xserver supports XKB, how come it doesnt with
clients talking to it over a forwarded ssh tunnel?
Or sometimes, I login to a remote machine and the first x command
works, but then sometime later xlib will complain that connections
are refused, eg:
Xlib: connection to "localhost:14.0" refused by server
Which I cant understand - how did it work before that, did ssh stop
forwarding the connection after a while?
All very strange. Anyone have any insights?
