What log?

So, back in http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-xfree/2008-11/msg00141.html, you said:

Now you say:

So: same problem? similar problem? different problem?  I could guess, but I'd 
rather not...

Back here http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-xfree/2008-11/msg00184.html, I asked if 
you could ssh -Y to the Solaris host and run X apps that way, or if they also 
fail on a keypress.  I don't see a response.

This is, of course, an imponderable.
