/usr/dt/bin/Xsession does not start when I ssh in Solaris 5.8

I run startwinx.bat. An xterm window comes up.
I ssh -X user@host.name .
I login and type Xsession.
I get a full screen with the Solaris logo in Black and gold saying welcome,
an adobe postscript Icon on the bottom left hand corner, and hourglasss and 
"Starting the 
 Commond Desktop Environment 
 CDE Version 1.4"

The system tray shows  Cygwin/Xserver - 0:0 when I move the mouse over the 
the Xserver Icon.

After CDE times out on the Solaris box startlog has:
 ksh: syntax error at line 1: `end of rile ' unexpected
 Couldn't open
/usr/dt/bin/ttsession[5907]: child ttsession exited with status 1
/usr/dt/bin/Xsession[792]: 5888 Hangup.

sessionlog file
dtsession_res: -load|-merge [-system] [-tty] [-xdefaults] [-file] <name>
Options -load xxx or -merge xxx must be specified
X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
  Major opcode failed request: 22(X_Set SelectionOwner)
  Resource id in failed request: 0x3a
  Serial number of failed request: 14
  Current Serial number in output stream: 15

My Display is set
echo $DISPLAY 

When I try putty I get a little further the solaris wallpaper comes up eventually.
Then when I kill one of the windows using task manager I see a bunch of Windows 
would normally appear on the Solaris desktop.

Any suggestions as to why I can not get CDE to work?
