Re: [bug?] Using apps with advanced UI via SSH

I use "ntsec tty" in both CYGWIN: env variable and ssh configuration.
When I connect to my system using ssh and execute "edit.com53" nothing

system using RDP, open Cygwin's console and the execute "edit.com54" - I
can see editor.
So I looks like Cygwin's ssh doesn't support applications with user
interface. Is this bug? Should I report this to someone, or mailing
this list is enought?
When I ssh into a Linux server (or two, actually), I have no
difficulty running pico, nano or vim, which are the standard Linux
terminal editors. (I did not try emacs, and won't until I know ahead
of time how to quit. vim was painful enough.)
