Debian bug for remote X session: How do I correct it?

I've come against a wall using X11Forwarding with SSH tunneling.

I've done the setup according to this thread and a few others. There is a connection but still not an X connection. How would I go about to solve this?

You normally only need to enable X11Forwarding in sshd_config on the server and use "ssh -X" on the client. Ssh sets up a proxy client at the server and a proxy server at the client. The DISPLAY variable for programs running on the ssh server will be localhost:10.0.

note: I don't use debian and am assuming their fork works the same way.
