That gives me all sorts of error messages and stuff at the remote end
because I am runnning my normal Gnome window manager at the local end
and it doesn't want to have two gnome sessions.

I find that it will run an individual task (xterm, ooffice, etc.) fine,
but one of the reasons I wanted this was to be able to do remote system
admin using the various drop-down menus and service lists that are a part
of the standard Gnome session/desktop.

Any ideas ?
