That can happen either a) you have $DISPLAY set but you aren't running
an X11 server or b) you are running an X11 server but $DISPLAY is not
set correctly to refer to it. In either case emacs will sit there
trying to connect to something that doesn't exist. It should time out
after several minutes though, which you can check to see if that is the
case. If so, fix your setting of DISPLAY.
The other possibility is the issue of a rebased cygncurses7 that causes
emacs to go into a 100% cpu spinloop at startup, for some as-yet
unidentified reason. However if emacs -nw works then that more or less
rules out this possibility.
