Arg! SuSE moved the location of 'xauth' out of

wanted to run X programs, ---> into
RPM "xorg-x11" (v7.2). The 'Fail'ing machine doesn't run an X-server. It
is only 'logged into' remotely and has no desktop, so it didn't have an
X server installed.

Sigh.... I guess I have to install the Xserver now, even though
it's on a machine that runs no server. Brilliant!

xorg-x11 neither contains nor requires the server to be installed. The
server is in xorg-x11-server
