I just tested from this machine to my laptop & this works for me:
$ ssh -C -X 192.168.4.102 -L 5900:192.168.4.102:5900 -l gl
bind: Address already in use
channel_setup_fwd_listener: cannot listen to port: 5900
Could not request local forwarding.
Linux gl-laptop 2.6.32-25-generic #44-Ubuntu SMP Fri Sep 17 20:05:27 UTC

Welcome to Ubuntu!
* Documentation: https://help.ubuntu.com/
gl@gl-laptop:~$ vinagre vnc://localhost:5900
that last opens vinagre & prompts for the password on the laptop, I
enter the password & off it goes. I also tested using tsclient & works
gl@gl-laptop:~$ tsclient vnc://localhost:5900
Vinagre has a reverse & ssh plugin. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to
be any documentation on how to use those... see:
[No mention of ssh or reverse]
