Well. That's pretty recent.

Likely, the recipe explained in section 6.5.1 of
<http://www.gnu.org/software/tramp/#Remote-processes> should work for you.

Adding an additional argumemt to the ssh call, like -X or -Y, is more
tricky. If the recipe above does not work, you could add a respective
entry to your ~/.ssh/config:

Host RHEL6-64
     ForwardX11Trusted         yes

Best regards, Michael.
