Are you setting the DISPLAY environment variable in your .cshrc or .profile or
..login file, or manually? If so, don't. When you use "ssh -X" it sets the
DISPLAY variable so it will work. If you set it, it won't.

I had the same problem when I upgraded to RHEL4. It turns out that the
later versions of ssh have two modes of X11 forwarding: trusted or
untrusted. Cadence (for some reason) requires trusted mode. Doing an
ssh -Y should fix the problem.

Additionally, you can add a line for the host in your ~/.ssh/config
file with the ForwardX11Trusted for that specific host (or all hosts)
so that you don't have to include the -Y option..

Thank you the problem is solved nicely. Have a colourful life.
