I suggest you switch to using VNC rather than VcXsrv.

At the place I work many people are in the same situation.  The best
solution is to setup a VNC server (most distros come with one), then
install a VNC client on your MS Windows machine.  Then you can do
everything on the remote machine.

VNC suffers from far fewer of these graphical problems.  We use RealVNC,
the GPL version.
