You need an X server on the ssh client side. An X client does not connect
where you don't tell it to connect. Most of the time that I use "ssh -X
-C", I don't have an X server on the machine that runs the X client; and I
mean that not only it's not in RAM, it's not on disk either.

you can also connect directly by X11 protocol for the same reason that you
can still use Telnet or RSH if you really want to.

Then you can probably re-mention it when they are done with their work if
people still use it with 64MB flash. (On the other machine that you
mentioned, diskspace is not even an issue.)
