It's pretty likely that the CDE and JDE sessions are exiting because something they are doing during initialization is returning an error they've decided they can't ignore.

The useful log in this case is almost certainly on the Solaris host. I don't know where the relevant log is, but you might start by looking in /.dt/startlog.

if you need help or more information to debug this issue, I will be
happy to help you.
if you already have an idea on something I could try to fix the WM_QUIT,
just reply to this message.

I have a Solaris 10 Update 7 (5/09) VM, and I'm able to start CDE or JDE using XDMCP from Cygwin/X 1.6.5-1 under Cygwin 1.7 without problems.
