I have a problem with Cygwin. I am connecting from USA by ssh to the
Hector supermachine in Edinburgh ( I write "startx" in Cygwin and then I
use  "ssh -Y" ). Everything works fine, the
only problem is that the forwarding of the windows is very very slow. It
takes sometimes also up to 5 minutes to open a new window. I am
debugging a code with Totalview and it is a impossible to work. I am in
contact with the Hector support and with their computer they tried to
run Cygwin under windows and connecting by ssh (exactly like I am doing)
and they say that x-forwarding  is fast.

The performance they're seeing probably has little to do with their Cygwin version --- they're a lot closer, after all, so support's latency is probably a lot lower.

Agreed. I would point out, however, that the OPs Cygwin versions are pretty out-of-date as well. Though I'm not sure it will help in this particular matter, it's worth thinking about upgrading.
