Lately, when I reboot, the computer gets as far as "Applying computer
settings", and sits there. For hours. Tech Support takes it, destroys
my old profile, creates a new profile, and it works.
Then, my cygwin Xserver can't be started. (I didn't realize that the
cygwin installer wrote anything to my profile. Hardware settings,
So, then I run setup.exe again on the Xserver parts, and everything is
fine and dandy.
Until I reboot again.
Wet hair, lather, rinse, repeat.

How do I prove 'conclusively' that it is NOT cygwin causing this
behavior. Without going back to tech support multiple times to
