Problem With remote X application startup

I am trying to run an X application on a Sun server that should open a
window on my linux desktop. I login using telnet and execute the startup
command and get the following error:

 /usr/app/xyvision/xz/bin/sdedit tt PDMsgml1
X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for
  Major opcode of failed request:  51 (X_SetFontPath)
  Value in failed request:  0x2e00009
  Serial number of failed request:  81
  Current serial number in output stream:  82

I have xhost + in the script I execute to login to allow for any Xfont
server to be able to connect. I am unsure why this is happening (worked
as is in XFree86 but not in Xorg)
Many thanks to anyone who can help.
