This doesn't work in 11.4 Tumbleweed:

The same works on SLES11. What has changed, why isn't X forwarded anymore and what's the "approved" way to do it now?

It works fine for me. I use it all the time, with both 11.0 and 11.4 as well as many other versions and distros. In fact, I just did it on my work server from home to run xclock and xcalc. I also often use it to run yast2, wireshark and even browsers remotely. It just works.
