This is not working well for me.  I've tested on both 32-bit and 64-bit
Cygwin with no .startxwinrc and no .[xX]* files, and I've tested on two
different computers (both running Windows 7).  I started the X server
via the new start menu shortcut.

What happens is that a band appears across the bottom of the screen
(full width), hiding about 2/3 of the taskbar.  This makes it impossible
to access the icons on the right side of the taskbar.  Also, there's no
X icon in the upper left corner of the screen.  But there is a large X
icon in the taskbar, partially visible above the band, and when I mouse
over it, I see a little window that says "X panel".  Closing this window
makes the band go away.  So I guess this band is the miniature fbpanel
referred to above, but it's appearing in the wrong place.

It does sound that way.

Finally, ~/.config/fbpanel/multiwindow exists but is empty.

I can't reproduce this. Do you have fbpanel-6.1-4? (The earlier releases from Ports do not include the multiwindow profile.) If you rm ~/.config/fbpanel/multiwindow, does it work after that? If not, if you 'cp -f /usr/share/fbpanel/multiwindow ~/.config/fbpanel/', does it work then?
