It appears your supposition is right.  The first call to
CreateWindowStation() fails for me.  Reason = "Access is denied".  So
there is some weird permissions problem.  I'll see if I can find

But, it didn't fail in the strace log that you sent me a couple of days
ago.  That seems pretty strange to me.

Yeah, I'm with you. Maybe I'll try putting back the CreateWindowStation call
to be what it was and make sure I can reproduce the desired behavior. Yes,
a sanity check makes some sense to me at this point. :-)

You have reinstalled cygwin at least 14 times, right?  This is a really
thorny problem so I think a whole bunch of reinstalls are called for.

Yes, I think you're right. ;-)

Actually, what I did find is that "ignoring" the problem of
CreateWindowStation failing like the code used to do solves the problem
for me.  I have to review the path that brought us here a little more
to see what the CreateWindowStation() changes were supposed to fix.  I've
forgotten now (if I ever really had a clear understanding ;-) ).
