exporting front end

I'm trying to have the Mathematica front end exported from one linux box to
another.  I log into the remote box:

ssh -X boxB

and start mathematica from the terminal (on boxA, that hosts the X-srver).
Front end strts and works OK but produces a stream of errors on the
terminal, all being replicates of this:

X Error of failed request:  BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request:  38 (X_QueryPointer)
  Resource id in failed request:  0x40
  Serial number of failed request:  15780
  Current serial number in output stream:  15780

with only the "serial number" changing, for example as I move the
mouse pointer around.

I have yet to find any application other than Mathematica that behaves this

If anyone has insights to offer I'd be glad to hear them.
