I have a host where kdm is running (and allowing sessions from my local
network, where other PCs running linux get their X-Sessions from this
I tried cygwin's X (and start applications from the server with for
instance "xv -display winbox:0", this works fine.
Then I try "X -query server", the server starts, but no kdm login window
appears. The server later writes in the log:
Mar  9 20:55:28 scorpio kdm[1255]: server open failed for,
giving up
Mar  9 20:55:28 scorpio kdm[31749]: Display cannot be opened

It seems the cygwin's X-Server reports as it's IP?
