Running DBus-enabled gnome app via ssh X11 forwarding causes it to confuse dbus socket name between the hosts

When I run meld over the network I get these messages:
$ ssh -X weirdo meld Warning: untrusted X11 forwarding setup failed: xauth key data not generated Warning: No xauth data; using fake authentication data for X11 forwarding.
** (meld:1729): WARNING **: Couldn't connect to accessibility bus: Failed to connect to socket /tmp/dbus-Z0cnz8UXQM: No such file or directory
meld runs on the remote host, but the socket it is looking for exists on the local host.
As a result, meld functions with some defects (ex. freezes).
