Big big big sigh.

And a big sorry for the hassle.

My only excuse is that I'm currently distracted by another project at my

It turns out that all three attempts, starting with my NUL: patch, over
your previous one, up to this one work fine in all cases under W7.

XWin works, xterm works, gvim works, urxvt works (and doesn't take 100%
CPU).  Starting emacs with `run emacs-X11' works.

I made a dumb mistake when testing the `run bash -c emacs' variation.
It didn't work before with my and your former attempt because I failed
to add correct quotation.

This fails:

  run bash -c -l emacs --display=

This works with all three variations:

  run bash -c -l "emacs --display="

See the small difference?

`run startemacs.bat' also works fine.  It didn't work for me because I
took the file content as is, without realizing that the Cygwin root dir
was set to C:\cygwin-1.7 in the script, while it's C:\cygwin on my
machine.  Urgh.

Again, sorry for the confusion. :(
