Unable to start XWin with --nolock

I am having trouble starting XWin on my system.
It complains about being unable to "read lock" the file -- okay, so it resides on a FAT32 drive, no big.? Just add --nolock to my command line and move on.
But it doesn't work.? But it does.? But doesn't.
I AM able to run XWin from inside cygwin's bash prompt:
$ xinit -- -nolock -multiwindow
$ startxwin -- -nolock
But I can NOT run Xwin from a Windows command prompt or a Start Menu shortcut:
> /cygwin/bin/run.exe /usr/bin/bash.exe -l -c /usr/bin/xinit -- -nolock -multiwindow
> /cygwin/bin/run.exe /usr/bin/bash.exe -l -c /usr/bin/startxwin -- -nolock
In these cases I am given the read-lock error, and:
"XWin was started with the following command line:? X :0"
In other words, I am unable to pass my command-line options to XWin, so I cannot work around the error.
Did I overlook something?? What do I do next?
Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.
