This is fixed when using `openssh-client` 1:7.2p2-4 on the client side
and `openssh-server` 1:7.2p2-4 on the server side.

** Changed in: openssh (Ubuntu)

Title:
  X11 forwarding slows down client

Status in openssh package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  X11 forwarding slows down Ubuntu 16.04 with Unity desktop whose whole
  graphic interface (including mouse pointer) repeatedly becomes
  unresponsive for seconds if `ssh -X` or `ssh -X -C` is used. The
  symptoms are the same as if the system were using slow swap space
  which isn't the case (verified with `htop` in another tty which can
  still be changed). This wasn't the case in previous unknown versions.

  experienced with client versions 1:6.9p1-2ubuntu0.1 on Ubuntu 15.10,
  V_7_1_P1-171-g4c6cb83 source installation and 1:7.2p2-4 on Ubuntu
  16.04 with `openssh-server` 1:7.2p2-4 on Ubuntu 16.04 on the server
  side.
