Is this similar to yours?

$xauth list
mythfront:0  MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1  (Value 1)
mythfront/unix:0  MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1  (Value 2)
localhost.localdomain/unix:0  MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1  (Value 2)

I don't have another system to test this on right now, but I wonder if
the values not all being the same could be a problem.
