When requesting X11 forwarding from an SSH server, PuTTY currently always
requests a default screen number of 0. This is less than optimal for users
of multiple-screen X servers, who might prefer a different default.
PuTTY should probably pull the screen number off the end of cfg.x11_display
and use that.
SGT, 2003-01-02: I think I've fixed this now.
