Guess I'm missing something, because X forwarding works just fine for me. Use it quite a bit, but I did further testing just now to confirm. Both OI 148 and 151 ssh -X works just fine for x forwarding. And I just confirmed I'm using the default Sun SSH. I tested ssh -X from a mac to OI 151 and 148 and between 151 and 148.
