It's a fact of life mostly with X. X startup can be very chatty.

$ cat ~/bin/runlbxproxy
lbxproxy $1 -display $2 -motion 32 -reconnect -reset \
-tagcachesize 10496000 -zlevel 9
$ runlbxproxy :100 $DISPLAY
Run that on the remote computer. Then set DISPLAY on the remote
computer to :100. Given you're using ssh, the zlevel is redundant,
just make sure your ssh has compression enabled and replace '-zlevel
9' with '-nocomp'.
It doesn't make much of a difference, but it can make a small
difference to interactivity once the app is running, particularly
with respect to those wee drop down menus found in many applications.

May you die in bed at 95, shot by a jealous spouse.
