Hi,

We recently purchased a copy of Stata-MP 11 for Solaris and we are having some issues with the X11 forwarding's speed. I have fixed a few of the issues as described below, but now I seem to encounter strange occurences when forwarding X onto Windows.

At first, the problem was with forwarding itself. On Linux, this was solved with "ssh -XYC" options, and on Windows we had to switch away from Xming/PuTTY to Cygwin/X, which is not a very elegant solution, so that we could use these options (PuTTY has no -Y equivalent, the key in the problem). Just wanted to share that since nobody else has mentioned "-Y" to fix X11 issues, and it took me awhile to discover that worked.

After that, it responded quickly but the Do-File Editor and Data Editor both crashed every time they were started. As found on this mailing list, "Edit->Preferences->Data Editor->Disable visual gradients (improves performance)" fixed solely the Data Editor. Currently I have not found a solution to fix the Do-File Editor's crashes.

Are there any other X11 performance tips that might help solve this?

Thanks!
-Brad
