No, neither remote nor local.

I just rebooted my machine to make sure no VM is sleeping somewhere -
but still the same problem :-(

That for some reason does not work, but I can of course do an 'export
AWT_TOOLKIT=MToolkit' in the ssh shell before I call 'matlab' (I suppose
that should make no difference to the ~/.ssh/environment approach?).
But then MATLAB freezes during startup - I cannot close the splash
screen using Mod-C nor kill matlab using Ctrl-C on the terminal running
the ssh session. Only Mod-C killing the terminal works (or probably a
SIGKILL to matlab, but I haven't tried that).
