I use the standard startxwin.bat to start Cygwin X Server. I believe it is
"%RUN% XWin -multiwindow -clipboard -silent-dup-error" by default.
Then I telnet into my Linux box. From there, I launch my java app which is
Swing-based. The java app is then open in a different window. The app is
working perfect in all aspects except for Drag-N-Drop.
