Question cygwin remote X text input doesn't work


i tried remote X using Cygwin and SSH
i could start kde
but if i start a graphical app z.B. a web browser
i can't enter some text! (typing on the keyboard -> doesn't see anything on the screen)

if i start the Terminal i can use it just normal
but the graphical version "Console" doesn't work

i don't know if it's a keyboard problem or maybe the graphical window doesn't get focused by the mouse so i can enter text
but i can click buttons, resize the window ...

but trying to enter some text in the graphical application doesn't work!

hmm, seems that the problem occurs only for konqueror

anybody knows why?
