Sorry, I've just read "I heard from other users of the same server that they did not have any problems, so I assume this must be an issue on my local machine.". Just keep the last part of my reply.

Subject: RE: vmd-l: Segmentation fault
have you ever tried to run vmd on the remote machine without passing through ssh and X11 forwarding? Does it work?
Anyway "ssh -X" does not look like the best option to use VMD remotly. It can be very slow... A NX server/client might be a best choice. Check something like http://wiki.x2go.org

I have a remote compute server on which I would like to run VMD and stream the GUI to my local screen. Every time I start the application, it
crashes with the following error report:

I heard from other users of the same server that they did not have any problems, so I assume this must be an issue on my local machine.
Any hint on how I could fix this?
I connect to the server using ssh -X.
Opening remote xterm and gnuplot windows works.
Local X windows version: 1.13.0
