I've just updated my Cygwin installation (1.5.25), and got the new
startx has stopped working.
After xauth creates a new authority file, it throws up a dialog saying
it's put help text
Perusing /var/log/XWin.0.log shows:
XWin was started with the following command line:
/usr/bin/X :0 -auth /cygdrive/c/Documents and Settings/
unrecognized option: and
suggesting that missing quotes somewhere in startx borked the command.
Adding quotes in throughout startx (xinit command, whenever I saw $HOME)
didn't change this; whatever can't handle spaces is a little hidden.
xinit run alone dies because it can't find supported fonts.
How to get cygwin's x-window-in-Windows-window support running again and
get to an xterm?
