cannot ssh forward with the usual settings

i cannot ssh forward, although i have the usual settings -except the fact that the server is running on Linux-Vserver guest on Sarge.

Here's what i get when i try to run firestarter or nedit for ex:
ipcop:~# firestarter
X11 connection rejected because of wrong authentication.
The application 'firestarter' lost its connection to the display localhost:10.0;
most likely the X server was shut down or you killed/destroyed
the application.
ipcop:~# nedit
X11 connection rejected because of wrong authentication.
X connection to localhost:10.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).
I issued this command for the Vserver host to route "ipcop":
ip addr add broadcast + dev eth0

where is the addr of "ipcop"
Here's the /etc/ssh/sshd_config of the "ipcop" server:
# Package generated configuration file
# See the sshd(8) manpage for details

# What ports, IPs and protocols we listen for
Port 22
# Use these options to restrict which interfaces/protocols sshd will bind to
#ListenAddress ::

HostKey /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key

# Don't read the user's ~/.rhosts and ~/.shosts files

# For this to work you will also need host keys in /etc/ssh_known_hosts
RhostsRSAAuthentication no
# similar for protocol version 2
HostbasedAuthentication no
# Uncomment if you don't trust ~/.ssh/known_hosts for RhostsRSAAuthentication
#IgnoreUserKnownHosts yes

# To enable empty passwords, change to yes (NOT RECOMMENDED)
PermitEmptyPasswords no

# Change to no to disable s/key passwords

UsePAM yes
Here's the /etc/ssh/ssh_config of the client:
#       $OpenBSD: ssh_config,v 1.21 2005/12/06 22:38:27 reyk Exp $

# This is the ssh client system-wide configuration file.  See
# ssh_config(5) for more information.  This file provides defaults for
# users, and the values can be changed in per-user configuration files
# or on the command line.

# Configuration data is parsed as follows:
#  1. command line options
#  2. user-specific file
#  3. system-wide file
# Any configuration value is only changed the first time it is set.
# Thus, host-specific definitions should be at the beginning of the
# configuration file, and defaults at the end.

# Site-wide defaults for some commonly used options.  For a comprehensive
# list of available options, their meanings and defaults, please see the
# ssh_config(5) man page.

Could it be a firewall/port issue?
