Keith and Igor, thanks for this thread


The reasoning is still beyond my ken, mostly because I haven't yet
digested the right set of man pages.

Nonetheless, it solved my problem, as described in


which was my just dessert for wielding Cygwin setup.exe so freely.

(I'm not on the cygwin-xfree list anymore, hence the links instead of a
simpler 'reply'.)

Incidentally, should I be seeing

	Warning: No xauth data; using fake authentication data for X11

when using ssh and X-forwarding (now with ForwardX11Trusted = yes)? It
looks like I have cookies in the right place. xauth report the same ones
on both the local and remote machine. Though, I have gnawing concerns
about the host part of the display name in those cookies; the
(alphabetic) cases do not match. Hum. I should try to share cookies
again (xauth extract, scp, xauth merge).

Ultimately, the above message is only unaesthetic; I haven't noticed
that it impacts performance.

Thanks and regards,

Vince Virgilio
