Remote applications in gnome-shell

Does someone know how to start remote applications in/from gnome-shell 
via ssh -X from remote machine? Most of apps I try to start from remote 
machine, complains about dbus and dies, or just plainly does not start. I 
can start xterm or xclock, but e.g. gnome-terminal can not. I 
know remote desktop sharing works only in fallback mode. So it is also not 
possible to run any remote application? Or is this some dbus feature?

Does it work when you use ssh -Y - -X has not worked for many applications in
years (FC4-ish?) since it requests untrusted X11 forwarding subject to the X11
SECURITY extension restrictions (see man ssh and the discussion of -X/-Y and
ForwardX11Trusted).

Be aware of the fact that you are trusting the remote machine when you use -Y -
it is possible for a malicious user on that system to attack your local X server
via the forwarded connection.

That said though, this is working for me between f15 and older releases and vice
versa with both -X and -Y.

Desktop sharing works fine here in native gnome-shell mode. There are a few
visual glitches but it is usable.

Can you post the output? What release(s) are you seeing this with?

OK, found it - the machine was originaly a copy of the first one. I've 
copied also /var/lib. This causes both machines to have the same dbus 
machine-id as if ID exist in /var/lib/dbus/ it is never regenerated. On 
ssh -Y the dbus-launch --autolaunch ends/is not started as it thinks this 
is the same machine (my explanation). This was a tough one. Just looking 
forward to another...
