SSH X forwarding not working

Greetings.  I've looked over the mailing list, but haven't been able to 
find out why using

ssh -X remote-host

wouldn't actually let you run X apps on the distant machine (to display 
locally).  I'm using the absolute latest and greatest Cygwin XFree86 
(fetched yesterday).

Any help would be much appreciated.

NOTE: I use startx (I have also tried using xinit) and have added 'export 
DISPLAY=localhost:0.0' to my .xinitrc.

Thanks in advance.
