Problem with ssh and X

I am trying to connect to a Sun UNIX box and display
the graphics on my PC running Cygwin. I am using
the command ssh -X -l <user-name> <remote-machine>.

The connection is being made OK, but when I try and 
run something with X graphics I get an error message
of the form:
X Error (intercepted): BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
Major Request Code : 7
Minor Request Code : 0
Resource ID (XID) : 58
Error Serial Number : 47
XView warning: invalid object (not a pointer), xv_get
finished; X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request 7 (X_ReparentWindow)
  Resource id in failed request: 0x3a
  Serial number of failed request: 47
  Current serial number in output stream: 56

I have a Netgear DG834G router/firewall, neither of which are
showing anything in the log. The odd thing is that I tried 
the same thing from my work PC and it was fine. I updated
the whole of my Cygwin installation yesterday.

Any help would be very gratefully received.
