I'm running a data analysis program called ferret on a remote machine

create a window, the Cygwin/X server crashes with a segmentation fault.
The seg fault is reproducible.
xclock works fine from the same remote machine.
This is with version 1.12.0-4 of xorg-server.
ferret has worked with some previous versions of the Cygwin/X server,
but I'm not certain about the precise version where the breakage
occurred. I backed up one version and encountered the same problem.
I've attached the output of "cygcheck -c", the file
/var/log/xwin/XWin.0.log, and the output of a gdb that is attached to
the XWin process when it crashes.
I'm at a loss about how to proceed further.
I welcome any advice that you can provide.
I realized that I can back up to other versions of xorg-server by
installing from the local directory that contains previous version
downloads. I have discovered that ferret works fine with version
1.12.0-1 of xorg-server (built 2012-03-12) and generates the
segmentation violation with version 1.12.0-2 (built 2012-04-04).
