This is an ancient problem of both X11 and Java/AWT for X11. It never
really worked well in the past decades, and today with heavy GUI
painting it is unusable.

What does work to some extent is RDP, i.e. the MS desktop sharing
protocol. I am using it routinely with a remote Windows 2008 server,
even going through rdesktop and X11 again.
