Would it be possible for you to also add some code for diagnosing problems with processes started from .startxwinrc? I'm hoping it might help with the problem I reported in

Hmm.. not sure code is really needed. You can see the output from startxwin by running it from a terminal, or capture it by changing the shortcut which runs it to something like the following (perhaps we should do that by default)

C:\cygwin\bin\run.exe /usr/bin/bash.exe -l -c '/usr/bin/startxwin.exe
/var/log/xwin/startxwin.log 2>&1'

That doesn't help, but I'll reply to my original thread to explain why. I shouldn't have interjected my question into this thread.
