As far as I now if you execute an app on another machine (over ssh) then it's 
going to run on *that* machine. So you need to forward X to get OOO's gui to 
appear on your box B.

I have no idea how to forward X when the ssh is going through Konqueror or the 
Gnome file manager.

On the command line its:

ssh -X yourname at hostname
