Thanks to Udo Grabowski and Ric Anderson for their fast replies.

I only compared the system configuration files in /etc/ssh but not
the users config file ~user/.ssh/config.

  # grep XAuthLocation ~zuser/.ssh/config
  XAuthLocation /usr/openwin/bin

  # ls -l ~zuser/.ssh/config
  -rw-r--r--  1 zuser  glue  112 Mar 17  2000 /home/zuser/.ssh/config

Deleting XAuthLocation entry solved the problem. Because this configuration
was seen by different users on our side just on this particular system it 
could be possible that years ago we have used openssh and this configuration
defined just the directory. Anyway, now it is working as expected with
the solaris version of ssh.

Thanks again!
