Re: [Fwd: Re: Xterm hangs with latest Cygwin (-62?)]

The only difference is the Cygwin version. -61 works, -62 hangs.


But this is not the same problem. Being unable to start the Xserver is not the same as being unable to start an Xterm.

If I simply revert to the cygwin1.dll from -61, leaving all else
unchanged, the command works just fine and xterm can be started with

This problem has been reported a few times before, but we don't know why it happens. You might try the suggestions in the FAQ [1] and see ifhtey help.

If you have more information, please add it to the bugzilla for this issue [2]

It's interesting that this is apparently provoked by a change in cygwin DLL. I see a few items in the ChangeLog which relate to link(), but nothing that seems relevant...
