And the command you are running is?

I think what affected your installation is a change of version of Xemacs not the
Cygwin dll.

This works for me with no problem:

  C:\cygwin\bin\run.exe xemacs

that is the target of the shortcut.  If you set the icon of this shortcut to use
the xemacs executable icon (i.e. C:\Cygwin\bin\xemacs-21.4.18.exe) that will
show the icon until the next change of version.
