It seems to be related to X and FC9.
I have installations of mathematica 6.0 on i386 and x86_64 machines,
of both fc5 and fc9 vintages.  selinux is _disabled_ on all machines.
>From the fc5 machines, mathematica starts locally and runs on local
displays without a problem.  After an ssh login to the fc9 remote
machine, mathematica can start and run normally with display on the
fc5 X session.  From the fc9 machines, ssh to the fc5 machine and run
mathematica works and displays on the local fc9 X display.  Local
running
of mathematica on the fc9 machines is hooped (including -
defaultvisual)
and ssh to another fc9 machine does not either give a functional
system.

luck.
