In combination with cygwin: clipboard doesn't work



Hello,

We are connecting from our windows machines to a debian testing machine 
via cygwin:

C:\cygwin\usr\X11R6\bin\XWin.exe :0 -clipboard -nodecoration -query 
debian-server

The debian-server was a SuSE machine in earlier times. Since we changed it 
to debian some months ago, the clipboard exchange between windows and the 
x11 session doesn't work anymore. This is quite annoying and we have no 
idea how to fix this. Can anyone help ?

When connecting the same way to a SuSE machine, the clipboard is working.

XWin's output concerning the clipboard is the following (its the same for 
SuSE and debian):

winProcEstablishConnection - Hello
winProcEstablishConnection - Xdmcp enabled, waiting to start clipboard 
client un
til fourth call.
winProcEstablishConnection - Hello
