RE: X11Forwarding problem on Solaris.

I don?t think the program is setuid. My .Xauthority file has only read
access by myself and the owner of the file does not has read access to my
Xauthority file. I have changed the access rights to read for all on the
Xauthority file but that didn?t help.

If the program is setuid <>, then
it can be the case that your .Xauthority file is not accessible to the
owner of the program.
