Cygwin having trouble with Fedora 11 gnome-terminal

Just upgraded my main Linux box to Fedora 11 and my cygwin installation 
on the laptop and windows boxen are having trouble with:

	ssh -Y -f gnome-terminal <user>@wolves.private

They report missing "General Event Extension" missing errors and then 
fail to start gnome-terminal with a "unable to contact Gconf daemon".
The problem seems to be specific to gnome-terminal in that I can install 
Terminal from XFCE and it starts up fine.

Is this a cygwin problem or a Fedora11 problem?  Any ideas?
