If you don't mind using a slightly older version of the Cygwin X11 
server you might point your students to this instead:

This was put together for exactly your stated purpose. It is a Cygwin 
installation pruned down to just the parts needed for X11 to run with 
Putty.  Since it uses the older X11 server it doesn't have any of the 
"features" (ie, problems from the perspective of your intended users) 
that the current X11 server does.
