On my local Windows 10 PC I start cygwin64 and enter:

set -x
export DISPLAY=localhost:0.0
sleep 5
startxwin -- -listen tcp >/dev/null 2>&1 &
sleep 10

then as a last step I say

xhost hostname_linux_host

but the input is no longer accepted as is stays like this with the cusor blinking.

mylogin@localPCID ~
$ xhost hostname_linux_host
+ xhost hostname_linux_host

In the past it would say hostname_linux_host being addedd Control list.

For some reason also all the Profile files are empty...
