This bug affected me on Lucid as well.

$ apt-show-versions |grep ssh
openssh-client/lucid-updates uptodate 1:5.3p1-3ubuntu4
openssh-server/lucid-updates uptodate 1:5.3p1-3ubuntu4
ssh-askpass-gnome/lucid-updates uptodate 1:5.3p1-3ubuntu4

$ grep X11 /etc/ssh/sshd_config
X11Forwarding yes
X11DisplayOffset 10

The only setting I needed to change was to set SSH_OPTS=-4 in /etc/defaults/ssh
and /etc/init.d/ssh restart.
Then I logged out and logged in again, and
 echo $DISPLAY
 localhost:10

I was connecting from a Mac running OSX 10.6.4 with the stock apple X11
and xterm.
