I'm using XFree86 for cygwin on Win2k, but I also tried to connect from another
linux machine (running RedHat 7.3 with XFree 4.2.0) and StarNet X-Win32. All
give same result.
This should be fixed in 126.96.36.199 if I remember correctly. Several more related
bugs are fixed in CVS and so I'll make a 188.8.131.52 very very soon.
Works now, I'll assume it was fixed.
