I did not upgrade Xemacs.  Executing the icon (which uses the path given above), or pasting that path into a cmd window, does nothing.  It just returns to the prompt and the window doesn't appear.  The upgrade of Cygwin did not affect the execution of 21.4.18 at all, only 21.4.13.  I'm not using 21.4.18 regularly yet for other reasons.
