know what information is relevant so this is long. Sorry.

I've been running some version of Cygwin 1.5 for many months now. I
would always just double-click on the "XWin Server" icon and then export
the display variable and ssh into what is currently an F11 box.
Typically I then only run thunderbird, emacs, firefox and oowriter. This
all worked pretty well.

The Cygwin-X list handles questions and issues concerning X on Cygwin. <>
