Hi all,
I have a strange error regarding X11 forwarding and Tcl applications.
I connect to the master host enabling X forwarding.
If I connect to an exec host (from the master) with ssh and start  
bltwish everything works.
If I connect to an exec host with qlogin I have this:

$ bltwish
Tcl_InitNotifier: unable to start notifier thread

$ qconf -sconf | grep qlogin
qlogin_command               /opt/sge/util/qlogin_wrapper.sh
qlogin_daemon                /usr/sbin/sshd -i


$ cat /opt/sge/util/qlogin_wrapper.sh
/usr/bin/ssh -p $PORT $HOST

also, in my /etc/ssh/ssh_config I have:

    ForwardX11 yes
    ForwardX11trusted yes

So that ssh every ssh should enable x11 forwarding without specifying  
in the command line...
This apparently happens only for Tcl/tk apps, so it may be a Tcl  
related issue, but sounds strange to me that it happens only with  
qlogin sessions... any hint?
