That makes sense.

In the meantime, I've already discovered another problem, within an hour of 
posting my claim that everything was working fine: If I start emacs-X11 with 
cygserver running, I can't fork any subprocesses within emacs.  I get

0 [main] emacs 2689 dofork: child 2693 - died waiting for dll loading, errno 11

Back to the drawing board....  I've never looked at the cygserver code, but 
maybe it will turn out to be something easy.
