For various reasons[1] I've found that the pam solution doesn't 
cover all bases and I've resorted to putting aklog in


If you have an sshrc it needs to deal with the xauth stuff as 

# Evil workaround for pam sshd stupidity.
if [ -n "$KRB5CCNAME" ] && [ -x /usr/bin/aklog ]; then
if read proto cookie && [ -n "$DISPLAY" ]; then
                      if [ `echo $DISPLAY | cut -c1-10` = 
'localhost:' ]; then
                              # X11UseLocalhost=yes
                              echo add unix:`echo $DISPLAY |
                                  cut -c11-` $proto $cookie
                              # X11UseLocalhost=no
                              echo add $DISPLAY $proto $cookie
                      fi | /usr/bin/xauth -q -

[1]- To be honest I've forgotten exactly what the combination 
was, but there was one edge case that I just couldn't get the
pam based solution to work. The sshrc solution is also required
on OS X.
