xwin freezes with kde via xdmcp

We are using XWin.exe to login via xdmcp to a debian linux (etch) server 
with kde (3.3.5), gnome ( and fvwm2 (2.5.18). I recently noticed 
the same problem that is described here: 


When logging in with cygwin and using kde, xwin.exe freezes after I have 
typed a key in konsole or any input field. A "top" on the console shows 
nothing special, XWin.exe -logverbose 3 gives no hint. The behaviour is 
strongly related to kde, since with gnome or fvwm everything is fine. The 
reason why I post here is:

1) With another X Server ( XThinPro ), everything is fine
2) Dito with a very old version of cygwin: everything is fine.
3) kde on the machine itself (i.e. not over xdmcp) works fine.

So this seems to me more related to cygwin then to kde. It would be great 
if you could tell me what I have messed up. I don't know which logfiles 
could be of any help, so please tell me which information you would need.

I attach cygcheck output for the version that freezes (cygcheck-new.out) 
and for the old version that is running fine (cygcheck-old.out).

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
