comment Is there any benefit to using IPv6 on my home network?
IPv6 was not designed to have tecnnical advantages. It was designed to solve a fundamental problem with the total number of available addresses. At the time it was first implemented, IPv6 did have technical advantages over IPv4, but over the years people have implemented almost all of those advantages with IPv4 as well. But the fundamental issue of not enough IP addresses remains. Because of this IPv6 WILL be universally deployed. It is only a question of how quickly will it reach the tipping point where it becomes the default.

comment Xforwarding in Ubuntu
I have seen it where the .Xauthority file was in the wrong state, and everything was fixed by deleting it, logging off and reconnecting via SSH. Something in the sshd seems to set up the $DISPLAY and .Xauthority if it can. I believe that running startx was the bad thing that got things mucked up. Must remember to use xclock to test the X connection.
