That does not work for some reason, here is what happens when I open up a
tcsh shell (without my .tcshrc):
[sgupta@sguptaxxxx /cygdrive/c]$ echo $DISPLAY
[sgupta@sguptaxxxx /cygdrive/c]$ emacs
emacs: Cannot connect to X server :0.
Check the DISPLAY environment variable or use `-d'.
Also use the `xhost' program to verify that it is set to permit
connections from your machine.

You can omit the address and the screen number -- i.e., set DISPLAY to
":0" and this will be fine. The local machine is then understood.
