New windows from cygwin in ssh

Hi, all!

Tell me please were there any changes to cygwin that made such
behaviour: when launch from cygwin bash shell any windows program like
notepad, for example, it normally opens its window and I can work with
it. But when I enter to cygwin via ssh from Linux-machine or even from
local cygwin bash, launching notepad hangs and doesn't seem to open any
windows or to do any other work. I can terminate this hanging by Ctrl+C,
of cause, but problem is that I can't invoke any windows-program from
cygwin via ssh.
In cygwin release of March 01, 2005 this launching works as I expect it,
but in release of January 20, 2006 it doesn't. Were there some changes
that did block this functionality for some reason?

Best regards.
