It appears to be the X11 forwarding that's failing. It's authentication of
a sort I guess.

How about .Xauthority? Is it being written. If not what permissions does
it have and what permissions does that home directory have? Make sure the
user can write to /home/jiao/.Xauthority

This looks like your problem to me. Your X authentication fails and you
can't therefore start an X session so all else bombs.
