I'm trying to use ssh's 'forward X11' feature to run a Perl Gtk2 app on the server at work and display it here at home.

This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'.

Is there any reason why I shouldn't be able to forward Perl Gtk2 apps via ssh? It seems a little strange that I can run some gtk2 apps but not this one.

Are you running ssh on gentoo? If so, try using "ssh -Y" instead of "ssh -X". I think I got similar errors running Evolution over the network. The errors disappeared when I started using the -Y option. I have no idea why this works - the guy at work that recommended it to me didn't know either.
