It would be useful if you could try a non-Cygwin X server (e.g. a
Linux or Solaris workstation). If X from under Linux appears fast,
then the slowdown could be between your network card and display
(probably Cygwin's fault). If X from Linux is also slow, the problem
may be with the propagation of the X protocol between your network
card and Hector (probably not Cygwin's fault) .
