xxdiff does not X11 forward on MacOS Catalina

Reported by: aedolphin Owned by: MarcusCalhoun-Lopez (Marcus Calhoun-Lopez)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.6.2
Keywords: catalina Cc:
Port: xxdiff


After upgrading to MacOS Catalina and upgrading to the 2.6.2 MacPorts for Catalina, xxdiff no longer forwards correctly across an X11 connection. Instead, the xxdiff window pops up on the server instead of the laptop from which I logged into the server. I have verified other X11 applications (e.g., xemacs, ds9) forward across the X11 connection as expected, so this issue is unique to xxdiff (or possibly Qt5, as xxdiff is the only Qt-based application I use).

I understand a work-around is to use remote desktop instead of "ssh -X" but it would be preferable if xxdiff could be forwarded.
