         Here's a patch which does just this :


         Use as follows
         * on remote host

                 X -allowNonLocalXvidtune  -verbose 100
                 DISPLAY=shire:0.0 xterm -e "xhost +ophir; sleep 99d"

         * on local host

                 RDISPLAY=shire:0.0 ./xvidtune

         Of course replace 'shire' and 'ophir' as appropriate.
