I'm trying to run Mplayer on my fast machine and export the display to 
my slower one.
The errormessage I get ist: "X11 error: XF86VidModeClientNotLocal"
I'm using XFree 4.2.1-6 (debian/sid) on both machines, and other
X-forwardings, like xterm and emacs work fine!
Perhaps somebody knows what my problem is.

thx for help
