As I have explained in
the problem is not the DOS windows (re-read: I say 'as it must') that
quickly disappears but with that snapshot, released 20060314 19:25, XWin
starts but xterm NOT. Regarding the run packages, startxwin.bat uses it:


SET RUN=%CYGWIN_ROOT%\bin\run -p /usr/X11R6/bin


%RUN% XWin -multiwindow -clipboard -silent-dup-error +bs


%RUN% xterm -sl 2500 -sb -rightbar -ms red -fg lightgray -bg black -fn
"-*-lucidatypewriter-medium-r-*-12-*" -e /usr/bin/bash -l
