I finally got a chance to get back to this problem.  You'll be glad to
know that it has simply gone away.  I suspect there really was a
problem with our local mirror (or the upstream one), and that updates
to the mirror mean the problem no longer occurs.

Thanks for the advice - and the latest Cygwin (especially "startx --
-rootless"), is better than ever!
