Hm. That's very strange. So the error is already present in this simple

It would be great if you could check what happens with remote usage with
other hosts where the problem does not occur (eg other unices)

win-host$ XWin -ac :0
unix-host$ DISPLAY=win-host:0.0 twm

You could also try Xming which uses a different network layer

$ "/cygdrive/c/Program Files/Xming/Xming" :0
$ DISPLAY=localhost:0.0 twm

(please notice it's localhost:0.0 instead of :0.0 because Xming does not
support unix sockets)
