You may have your ssh config file set up not to allow X forwarding (man ssh, man sshd for all the nitty gritty). When you issue your ssh command try using the -X option. is the $DISPLAY env variable set now?
Here's another thing that helps when you're trying to figure out what's going on with ssh: use the -v (verbose) option it dumps a lot of stuff on stdout to tell you what's happenin'. really. try it.
