Xlib: PuTTY X11 proxy: wrong authorisation protocol attempted

As oracle, I try to run the "owm" application and am getting the following errors:

I have re-generated the 'magic cookie' .Xauthority file, looked at ~/sshd_config file, etc. to no avail.  $DISPLAY is set correctly.

Normal X windows programs like xterm and xlock are working, so it does not appear to be an SSH issue.

Any idea why this is happening?

This below is a different error to the same command, but this is what I get when I run it via Fsecure.

X connection to localhost:13.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).
