XWin warning messages

Having successfully installed Cygwin a couple of days ago, I started 'playing' with a building simulation program called ESP-r (developed over many years at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow - see "Software" at, which I know from my 'previous life' as a university researcher/lecturer, and which was recently made available in a form tailored for Cygwin.

I wonder whether someone could shed some light on the warning messages I get when I start up an XWin environment under Cygwin.

All I would like to know really is whether any of the messages are cause for concern and whether I need to take some corrective action (and if yes in what form).

Please be patient with me - I have been using PCs for some years now, and I dare say my UNIX knowledge has become somewhat rusty ;-)

Thank you.

Herbert Eppel
