The phone apps are displayed by an ui "daemon" app.  IIRC it's called
phoneuid and starts on X startup, connects to the local DISPLAY and
phoneui-message and others just tell it to pop up the respective

You could however try stopping it (killall phoneuid), then running it on
your ssh forwarded display and then running phoneui-messages...
You will have to kill it then again and run it on the freerunner's DISPLAY to
have your apps work on freerunner again.
