RH-EL-4 -vrs- RH-EL-5

Another problem has cropped up.

I use CygwinX with RH-EL-4, and other machines - been working great.

Now, New machine RedHat Enterprise Linux 5

Same connection method, works great with RH-EL-4 (ie: Refer to my earlier
multiple sessions email)

But when connecting to RH-EL-5 - provided I do nothing with the keyboard it
works perfectly.

If however, if I type anything on the keyboard - 1 letter, or 10 to 20
letters... within seconds of typing something, CygwinX totally hangs for
some period of time (10 to 20 seconds) - ie: Windows says "it is not
responding" - then it refreshes - catches up on what I type, then goes away
for 10 to 20 seconds... repeat for ever....

Does not matter if I open an Xterm and type "ls", or open FireFox and type

I suspect RH-EL-5 is provoking something in CygwinX - I do not know. The
CygwinX is very new (I got a new computer 1 month ago and did a fresh
install of cygwin)

The relevant X11 versions are below (grepped from /etc/setup/install.db)

Looking bash/cygwin window where I started the session, I do not see
anything important etc - ie: timeout messages, just the 'normal bunch of
warnings' same on all machines - including RHEL5

Any suggestions?
