Ah, in addition to an Xwin.0.log which actually corresponds to the command you 
are using, the contents of /var/dt/Xerrors on the Solaris machine may prove 
informative as well.

It seems that Sun have fixed the brain-damage in their website which was 
previously preventing me from downloading Solaris 10, so I now have a Solaris 
10 Update 7 (5/09) VM to do some testing with.

Unfortunately, while I did find a few issues (patches to follow), I'm not able 
to reproduce the one you see:  XWin -query <IP> starts up an XDMCP session for 
me and I can log in successfully.
