Thanks, Tomasz. As I confirmed with Andrew, I believe
the permissions to the /tmp/.X11-unix got narrowed
during the setup of sshd. I emailed Mike Erdely and
his ssh-l mailing list about this. The same setup
procedure also made the /home unwritable, so cygwin
couldn't create new home directories for new users.
Funny that no one commented on that when I reported it.
I imagine Mike's quite busy right now, as his personal
website shows that he is a new father.
