Hi Brad,

You should check that X11Forwarding is set to yes in the sshd_config file.

The X Display variable should be set to something like localhost:10.0
or and not as the IP address of your PC. If you set
this to your PC IP address then you will be bypassing the SSH tunnel.
Type echo $DISPLAY at the prompt to see what is set.
