I have been using Cygwin Xfree86 for a long time with success on Windows 
2000. After installing Cygwin and Cygwin Xfree85 on my brothers Windows 98 
PC today and starting Evolution on the server side (through an SSH 
connection) this causes the PC to crash (or more precisely XWin adn 
Explorer crash and restart seems to be the best cure). Starting xterm 
works fine. I can start Evolution fine on my W2K PC through an 
SSH-connection with the same SSH client. Here is the X-components I have 
installed on my W2K PC:

4.3.0-1 XFree86-base
4.3.0-8 XFree86-bin
4.3.0-8 XFree86
4.3.0-6 XFree86-etc
4.2.0-3 XFree86-fenc
4.2.0-3 XFree86-fnts
4.3.0-1 XFree86-lib
4.3.0-2 XFree86-lib-compat
4.2.0-5 XFree86-startup-scripts
4.3.0-44 XFree86-xserv

The W98 PC has a superset of this.

What could be wrong?
