Mathematica 7---through SSH and X11---freezes when I open a dialog box

    Hello, I've been having an odd problem: I run Mathematica 7 remotely using SSH and X11. Everything seems to work fine *except* that everything hangs the moment I do something that opens a dialog box. For example, if I try to Save As or Open a document, the window will become unresponsive and I have to kill the process using the command line.

    I'm using OS X Leopard and have installed the Mathematica fonts following these instructions.

    Does anyone have any thoughts for what might be wrong?

    First determine which application is hanging. Is it Mathematica, ssh or X11? Probably it's X11. If so, you could open Activity Monitor (in Utilities) while X11 is unresponsive, click on the X11 process and then on Sample Process. You could post that here. Also, you might post at
