I am running the most current version of Cygwin on a WIN2K machine.
When run locally, the X Window system seems to be working fine.  At

opens up and functions.

I am trying to use remote XDM on a Debian (Woody) system, where X is
also functioning locally.

Using the command:

"C:\Program Files\cygwin\usr\X11R6\bin\XWin.exe" -query <IP of Debian
with the start path of:

"C:\Program Files\cygwin\bin"

After clicking on "OK", I get my XDM login screen, and everything works
perfectly.  I just can't figure out how to get rid of that error pop-up.

Any ideas?
