Well, actually I did not get anything working at all that I set
out to try and get working.  I set out to try and get X11 forwarding
working but still have not accomplished it.

Any setting of the DISPLAY variable either manually or from PuTTY
to anything other than what ssh sets it to bypasses encryption
provided by ssh and doesn't solve the problem.

Anyone else have any ideas?
