A simplistic work around is to simply not use xauth.exe. If the port
that the X server is running on (i.e. 6000 by default) is only
available via localhost, this should be reasonably secure vs.
validating individual connections.
Simply make xauth.exe unavailable with a command like:
mv /usr/X11R6/bin/xauth.exe /usr/X11R6/bin/xauth.exe.nohang
Then forwarding works:
$ ssh -Y target
Warning: No xauth data; using fake authentication data for X11 forwarding.
