X11 forwarding *works* for root, but not me -- what changed?

After a machine reboot X11 forwarding no longer works for me.
But, it does work for root. This is backwards of the typical problem.
The error message I get is:

X connection to myhost.mydom.com:11.1 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).

- The DISPLAY is the same for me as for root.

- root relies exclusively on /etc/ssh_config, i.e. there is no

- When I comment out everything in my ~/.ssh/config it still doesn't

Like I say, this used to work fine. I don't think I changed anything,
but now it doesn't work. ssh *without* X works fine for me.

I've been all over google stuff, and checked the OpenSSH FAQ.
I'm using OpenSSH 4.3p1 on the client & OpenSSH 3.6.1p2 on the server.

I'd like some pointers on how to troubleshoot this please.
