Ubuntu 9.04 + X11 forwarding + Windows XP + Putty + XMing

Wow, I sure thought this was a longshot when I went searching for an obscure problem I was having. Strangely enough, someone else using putty and Xming to run X11 applications from a Jaunty machine also got the error message:

PuTTY X11 proxy: wrong authentication protocol attemptedError: Can't open display: localhost:10.0

And their fix worked for me too. Thanks, timkoop on the Ubuntu Forums!
