X Protocol Error: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) on protocol request 38

I'm using Cygwin's X server (latest version) to log into a Linux box.
Using Emacs (in its own X Window) on the Linux box. I intermittently
get the above error message which crashes the Emacs X Window.

Thanks for any help you can give me with this problem,

That is usually a bug in the application. My web site has a copy of my
tutorial on debugging protocol error messages.

Thanks. I managed to solve the problem by putting

ForwardX11Trusted yes

in my ssh config file.
