Hi Guys,

Summary :

I am running on an old 700mhz intel Celeron machine with an intel 
motherboard. I have Windows XP Pro installed.

I have just downloaded the latest cygwin packages first the default then the 
full install of the x11, gnome and all the libraries. I am using openssh to 
connect to a local Ubuntu feisty server that is running gnome. I have 
connected to the box yesterday and now I am getting segmentation fault with 
error "26 [main] xwin 3940 _cygtls::handle_exceptions: Error while dumping 
state (
probably corrupted stack)"

Cygwin1.dll version = 1005.24.0.0

Commands Issued:
$ xwin :0.0 -clipboard -engine 1 -nodecoration -swcusor &
$ DISPLAY=:0.0 ssh usernameIP_ADDRESS -XY exec dbus-launch gnome-session

I enter the password to logwin and get the following:

Warning: No xauth data; using fake authentication data for X11 forwarding.
winProcEstablishConnection - Hello
winInitClipboard ()
winClipboardProc - Hello
DetectUnicodeSupport - Windows NT/2000/XP

     26 [main] xwin 3940 _cygtls::handle_exceptions: Error while dumping 
state (
probably corrupted stack)
The application 'gnome-session' lost its connection to the display 
most likely the X server was shut down or you killed/destroyed
the application.
