The problem is not with matlab but with Apple's installation of ssh. I'm

myself, but I can tell you where to look.
In order for X11 forwarding to work, two processes have to cooperate.
One is ssh running on the local machine, and that part works ok, provided
you use the ssh -X option or (equivalently) have a line reading
in your ~/.ssh/config file.
The other process that has to participate is sshd (the ssh daemon) that
is running on the remote machine that you are connecting to. In order
for this to happen, X11 forwarding must be enabled in /etc/sshd_config.
If you examine this file on your Mac, you will find a commented line
and therefore, at the very least, you would need to uncomment this line
and change the "no" to "yes". However -- and here is the catch -- I have
heard that Apple's sshd won't support this option even if you enable it
in the configuration file. I can't remember whether there is an easy
workaround for this or not.
On the other hand, you might investigate the version of openssh that is
offered by fink. If you are already using X11, then you probably know
what fink is, but it's at fink.sf.net. I think this version might work
better than the Apple version for what you are trying to do.
