ssh-client doesn't work with X-forwarding (at least with me)

I have the same problem with the cygwin-ssh-client like Hans.
ForwardX11 is enabled in the ssh and sshd_config.
The DISPLAY-variable is after the login empty.
If i set the DISPLAY-variable manually, X11-forwarding doesn't work.
The login and X11-forwarding works with other ssh-clients.
But for all that cygwin is a great software.
Thanks for any answers !!!!!
