A user has noticed that X11 forwarding does not appear to work when using session
multiplexing. It seems that the DISPLAY environment variable is not getting
set in the slave sessions.

Any thought? The ~/.ssh/config ib below.

Host somehost-master
ControlMaster yes
ControlPath ~/.ssh/somehost.sock
HostbasedAuthentication no
HostName somehost

Host somehost-slave
ControlPath ~/.ssh/somehost.sock

Host *
Ciphers blowfish-cbc,aes128-cbc
ForwardAgent no
ForwardX11 yes
ServerAliveInterval 300
