Do you get an error message when it crashes?


** (emacs:3752): WARNING **: Couldn't connect to accessibility bus:

This warning is normal (and harmless) when you login remotely.

Bad system call         (core dumped) emacs

The second message is sometimes omitted, however.

Does it leave a stackdump file?

Have you enabled X11 forwarding in /etc/sshd_config?

Xterm works, so I guess I did.

It wouldn't hurt to double check; you should have a line that says "X11Forwarding yes" in /etc/sshd_config in the Cygwin installation.

Also "emacs -nw" works.

This doesn't use X.

Please provide as many details as possible

The box from which I ssh into this runs FreeBSD... I'm using a domain
user... X runs fine locally...
Sorry, I really don't know what else to add.

I'm willing to play any test you need, but I don't always have this box
avaliable, so it might take time.

and please attach cygcheck output as requested here:

Please, find it attached.

It looks like you don't have the cygserver service running. My recollection is that you might need this for X11 forwarding of emacs to work.
