Eek!  I'm sorry I wasn't clear enough.  Only the X server is running on
Solaris.  It's

debian$ DISPLAY=solaris:0 <program>

In all cases mentioned, the binary is running on x86-32 Debian (current
unstable).  Only the X server is remote.

I submit that even if the remote X server were actively malicious,
segfaulting would be undesirable behaviour.  (If nothing else,
segfaults suggest buffer overflows which imply security issues.)
