Submit LSF (bsub) job with SSH X11 forwarding


I have the following scenerio:
"PC" is a Windows machine, running Cygwin/X server.
"LoginServer" is a Linux machine.
"RunServer" is a Linux machine.

I can connect from PC to LoginSever, using:
ssh -Y LoginServer
And then run GUI commands, such as GVim, or xclock
$DISPLAY is localhost:13.0

However, when I try to 'bsub' them, it's not working...
It seems that LSF changed $DISPLAY value.
Error: Can't open display: LoginServer:13.0
I've found that there is a new "-X" paramter that should solve this, starting from LSF 7 Update 6:

However, we have an earlier version here.

How can this be solved?
