In addition, when I run gnome-control-center (on the remote), I get:

libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast
libGL error: Try again with LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose for more details.

(gnome-control-center:23967): Gdk-ERROR **: The program 
'gnome-control-center' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadLength (poly request too large or internal Xlib 
length erro'.
   (Details: serial 165 error_code 16 request_code 147 minor_code 1)
   (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
    that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
    To debug your program, run it with the GDK_SYNCHRONIZE environment
    variable to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
    backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() 
Trace/breakpoint trap (core dumped)
