The sshd service is running under my account. I go to Linux (via ssh).
Then run ssh there, login onto my computer under my account, try to run
any desktop program and it doesn't show any windows.
My friend on another computer does all the same but with his account and
his computer and desktop program shows all windows as expected.
The differrence between our configurations:
my - Windows XP, cygwin of 01.07.2006 (all standard packages)
his - Windows 2000, cygwin of 01.03.2005 (all standard packages for that

Why the behaviour is different?
