Can't start remote emacs client

I am trying to run a remote emacs client. I have installed the latest
Cygwin (GNU bash, version 2.05.0(6)-release (i686-pc-cygwin)) and
Cygwin-XFree86 (from xc-4-binaries/4.1.0). I use startxwin.sh to start the
server. I am able to ssh into the remote machine (telnet is disabled) and
can start a remote xterm session with no problem. When I try to start a
remote emacs session from the remote xterm session (or directly from the
local xterm session) the server crashes and I get the following dump:
Fatal server error:
negative sized edge?
xterm: fatal IO error 32 (Broken pipe) or KillClient on X server
X connection to 127.0.0.1:0.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).
Any suggestions or help would be most appreciated.
