What's the output of "ssh -X -v user@system"?

At the end (or the previous-to-last line) there should be:
debug1: Requesting X11 forwarding with authentication spoofing.

Probably you'll find a message there that xauth is not working or

I second that. You might not really see an error (I don't see one here in a
comparable case), but if xauth and/or probably some X libraries are not there,
you don't get the X forwarding....

I am guessing this is what my problem is. The missing libraries are on
the system into which ssh is connecting. The system I am connecting from
works towards a standard installed openSUSE. As I wrote elsewhere in the
thread, the system I an connecting to is a KIWI diskless openSUSE. So I
am keeping the installed software to the absolute minimum. Of course, I
can add whatever is missing. Provided I can determine what it is.
