Seems OK. Has entries for the server I'm SSH'ing to

$xauth list
<server>/unix:11  MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1  <blah>

$ xauth info
Authority file:      ~/.Xauthority
File new:             no
File locked:          no
Number of entries:    5
Changes honored:      yes
Changes made:         no
Current input:        (argv):1

I had already got suss of this and removed the file so should be OK.
Permissions are good too. (600)
