Okay, I'll try that, but a quick question: should an xauth problem result
in failures for every X application I try to run?  Other applications
(other than emacsclient) run just fine.

As Dan suggested, I ran ssh -v, and this is what I got:


This is strange, there should be a lines like this:
debug1: Requesting X11 forwarding with authentication spoofing.

Anyway, one source for this problem is that the shell that runs emacs -daemon
has set XAUTHORITY in the environment to point to some other file.
That environment variable isn't set when you ssh in, so xauth writes to
~/.Xauthority

If this is the case, when you ssh in you must do:
% XAUTHORITY=... (the value it has in the emacs -daemon shell).
% export XAUTHORITY
% xauth remove unix:10
% xauth merge ~/.Xauthority

It might happen that you don't have unix:10, look at your $DISPLAY and replace
localhost with unix in the xauth remove line.  10 is where sshd starts, but if
several ssh sessions to the same host are ongoing, they will have different
DISPLAY:s.
