Installing the ha-simulator on a PVE node directly to start it via ssh
and x11 forwarding will need the 'xauth' package installed on the PVE
node as well.

Otherwise one is likely to encounter the following error when starting
the simulator: `Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection

I added this patch as I think it might be good to have a hint in the
docs as well and not just a suggested package.

 You can then start, stop, migrate the simulated HA services, or even check out
 what happens on a node failure.
+NOTE: Should you install the simulator on a {pve} node, it is possible that
+starting the simulator will fail at first. If that happens, consider installing
+the 'xauth' package on the {pve} node.
