Xauth issue running eth remotely

Hi everyone. When sitting at my ubuntu 14.04.2 machine, running eth, everything works as expected. If I log into that same machine remotely through ssh (same username, same everything) and try to run eth, I get the following:
[email protected]:~$ eth
No protocol specified
Error: No root privilege. Please check with the system-admin.
Error: No root privilege. Please check with the system-admin.
Error: No root privilege. Please check with the system-admin.
Error: No root privilege. Please check with the system-admin.

Error: No root privilege. Please check with the system-admin.
No protocol specified
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
I suspect this has something to do with Xauth and the video drivers. However, when I run with X forwarding or trusted X forwarding, I get the same results. In the sylog, I can see that the core dump is being caused by libatiadlxx.so, which is part of the graphics drivers. Running as root gets rid of the complaints about root privilege (which should be taken care of by Xauth anyway, I believe), and I get the following result:
[email protected]:/home/samuel# eth
No protocol specified
No protocol specified
No protocol specified
No protocol specified
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
Running with sudo gets rid of the segfault, but still I get the "No protocol specified."

Any ideas on how to remedy this?
