Ubuntu - Getting audio to play from local speakers over SSH

In Intrepid, when I logged into my desktop over SSH and launched Rhythmbox (ssh hostname -XYC), it would play the sound out the desktop's speakers, which is what I want. Now in Jaunty, it plays the sound out my laptop's speakers, which I don't want. How do I configure the audio to come out the server's speakers when I connect to it over SSH? Has this changed again in Karmic?

I disabled "Enable network access to local sound devices" and "Make discoverable network sound devices available locally", then rebooted. Now the sound comes out the local speaker instead. I have no idea why it connects backwards like that when logged in over SSH.
