Solaris Patch Breaks SSHD X11 Forwarding

Recent patches on Solaris break SSHD's forwarding of X11 connections. Great. This is acknowledged by Sun, though their idea of a workaround — disable X11 forwarding — is a strange one. Thankfully there are more helpful people around. Therefore edit sshd_config for IPv4-only

  # IPv4 only
  # IPv4 & IPv6
  #ListenAddress ::
and start sshd with the IPv4 option, for example
  /usr/lib/ssh/sshd -4 -p 2222
and all is well.
