I believe this should already be fixed in GIT.

Most likely bet is that we run ssh with different environment variables
than we used to.  We now do:

    cmd = virCommandNew(binary ? binary : "ssh");
    virCommandAddEnvPassCommon(cmd);
    virCommandAddEnvPass(cmd, "SSH_AUTH_SOCK");
    virCommandAddEnvPass(cmd, "SSH_ASKPASS");
    virCommandClearCaps(cmd);

I guess it probably wants to have 'DISPLAY' passed through too. Can you
see if this is sufficient.

Daniel
