I have this problem with a tool, that I launch from a terminal on a specific computer - as far as I can tell it's a binary executable. If I remotely connect via ssh (using the -Y option) to this computer and launch the tool it crashes immediately reporting a segmentation fault. When I launch it locally it works.
Since it is part of a toolkit (actually started by a TCL script, not by myself) I'm not even sure if it creates any UI elements. The TCL script generates a UI which works fine.
The computer where the tool runs, is running some older version of red hat, RHEL 5 I believe. My computer (the one I want to ssh-connect from) runs a very recent version of Ubuntu.
Of course what I would like is be able to run the tool remotely without segmentation fault. Perhaps it is caused by the discrepancy between versions of the systems (or of ssh)? What could cause a program to crash only when launched via ssh?
