I enabled some extra session logging in my .dtprofile under solaris and
I found an error.
I did the test with cygwin 1.5 and 1.7 so I could see the difference.
I included some log files.
when I tested with cygwin 1.5, I generated theses 2 log files:
startlog-cygwin1.5.log and display_cygwin1.5.log
when I tested with cygwin 1.7, I generated theses 2 log files:
startlog-cygwin1.7.log and display_cygwin1.7.log
The session worked using cygwin 1.5 but failed with 1.7.
we can clearly see the issue with the log file display_cygwin1.7.log
X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)

Minor opcode of failed request: 2 (XINERAMAGetScreenCount)
Resource id in failed request: 0x0
Serial number of failed request: 248
Current serial number in output stream: 248
can I recompile xwin.exe and disable xinerama or is there a different
way to do it?
if so, how would I fix this?
You should be able to work around this by starting the X server with
'-xinerama' to disable Xinerama.
A bit of googling throws up various similar looking problems, including
this  which seems to indicate it is a Solaris incompatibilty with X.Org
(which presumably only shows up with Solaris on sparc as they use Xsun?)
