This is still open so I am moving it from user to bugs ...

Not, at lease, in my setup. I am running GuixSD built from git checkout ...

b006ba5 [behind 15] pull:  Update the version string.
  
On the client, ssh produces ...

'X11 forwarding request failed on channel 0'

On the headless server (g1) in /var/log/messages ...

Jul 21 12:24:51 localhost lshd[381]: lshd: Failed to cd to `/tmp/.X11-unix' (errno = 2): No such file or directory 
Jul 21 12:24:51 localhost lshd[381]: lshd: Updating utmp for login failed (errno = 2): No such file or directory 

With this workaround ...

sudo mkdir /tmp/.X11-unix
sudo chmod 777 /tmp/.X11-unix

... if I log out and back in X11 forwarding "works" and in
/var/log/messages ...

Jul 21 12:33:44 localhost lshd[381]: lshd: Updating utmp for login failed (errno = 2): No such file or directory

When I logout, in /var/log/messages I see ...

Jul 21 12:36:06 localhost lshd[381]: lshd: Updating utmpx for logout failed (errno = 2): No such file or directory 
Jul 21 12:36:06 localhost lshd[381]: lshd: write_buffer: Attempt to write data to closed buffer. 
Jul 21 12:36:06 localhost lshd[381]: lshd: Disconnect for reason 11: disconnected by user

Of course, the workaround needs to be re-applied each time the server is
rebooted.

The system and user configs are attached below ;-)
