Since 10.6.3, ssh w/x11 forwarding takes a long time to connect

    I'm not sure if the OS upgrade to 10.6.3 is involved or not, but I've noticed that all of a sudden, ssh connections to my Linux box would take like 30 seconds before I'd get a prompt. I tried lots of different things to resolve the problem, but what finally worked was disabling "-Y", forwarding X11. Can anyone give any insight into this and help me resolve it so that I can forward X11 without the connection taking forever to establish?

    Definitely a 10.6.3 problem

    This is definitely a problem with 10.6.3 that was not there with 10.6.2. Two of my Macs have been updated, and they have the problem, while the one that has not is fine.
