Bzzzt.  Man sshd(8):

             Specifies whether X11 forwarding is permitted.  The default is
             ``yes''. Note that disabling X11 forwarding does not improve se-
             curity in any way, as users can always install their own for-

Man ssh(1):

             Specifies whether X11 connections will be automatically redirect-
             ed over the secure channel and DISPLAY set.  The argument must be
             ``yes'' or ``no''.

What man ssh(1) doesn't tell you in this paragraph is that even
if you say "ForwardX11 yes" in ~/.ssh/config, you will not get
a proxy X session unless the server has "X11Forwarding yes" in
/etc/ssh/sshd_config.  The default that my system configured
itself with was "X11Forwarding no", and I've just changed it,
and now it works.

That's what I found out as a result of this conversation.
