I have Xilinx 14.2 installed on a RHEL5 linux server and I've been using CygWin on a WinXP machine to remotely connect to the server. Invoking the planahead GUI seems to work fine, but I'm encountering some strange mouse behavior. Many of the panels do not respond to mouse clicks. If I go to the menus and reopen that panel, then it will respond, but some other panels will then stop responding. Worse, the device view doesn't respond to mouse clicks under any circumstance. This is making it near impossible to debug timing errors!
Has anyone encountered behavior like this before? This doesn't happen with QuestaSim, Matlab, or Synplify Pro.
Unfortunately, we are contractually prevented from connecting the server to machines that are on the internet and cannot remove anything electronically from the machines, which means I can't share screenshots or installation files :(

CygWin was actually our backup. We had a number of issues getting Exceed to reliably work, and the costs of even fixed-node licenses were prohibitve. We had to give Exceed up. We could look for yet other alternatives, but we don't have anyone at our company to support other solutions. It would also only be a long-term solution since we are working from our customer's network, and they would need to review and approve other tools (slow) and we would need to purchase and provide licenses for any commercial tools (even slower).
Your reply was very terse, which makes me think you know something that you expect I should know. Are there known compatilibity issues between CygWin and Xilinx tools? Is there something that I should be aware of?
