notify-send through ssh


Howto send messages to squeeze desktops using notify-send through ssh?

I've tried the following on my localhost, but it doesn't work:
# ssh -X user@localhost 'DISPLAY=:0 notify-send "TEST MESSAGE."'
user@localhost's password: 
/usr/bin/xauth:  creating new authority file /home/user/.Xauthority

(notify-send:9383): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed
