[IPython-dev] remote X DISPLAY

Dear all,
more than 1 year ago (20130226) a discussion came across (on 
ipython-user) how to run ipython notebook on a remote machine. The 
solution than was to create a ssh connection, and run the notebook 
inside "screen".

Now I want to use X forwarding show gtk matplotlib windows. This works 
as long as I keep the original SSH connection open. However, when I 
create a new ssh connection, the "DISPLAY" environment variable should 
change. Is there I way I can tell the %matplotlib gtk magic to pass a 
certain DISPLAY to gtk?

Kind regards,
