There has been a report some days ago. But since I can't reproduce it
there is litte chance to get this fixed. 

You could try Xming (http://wiki.freedesktop.org/wiki/Xming). It uses
nearly the same codebase as XWin but uses windows sockets directly. 
Maybe this solves the network problems.

BTW: have you checked if /tmp is mounted in textmode? This used to give
similar symptoms. The error should have been fixed for some time now but 
maybe it's a regression.
