I guess it wasn't clear: I've got both Emacs 22 and CVS trunk
installed. With 22 client/server, it works; with trunk it fails as
described. So it can't be anything like home directory permissions. It
can only be a ssh problem if it is one that has remained hidden until
the recent changes to emacsclient/server have somehow brought it to
light. I have no other problems with ssh X11 forwarding.
