I'm used to using ramdisk (assigned to drive X:, FAT-32) as tmp directory,
Fatal server error:
Can't read lock file /tmp/.X0-lock
It even says you can't have the lock file on a FAT volume.
The lock file isn't created in /tmp when error dialog pops.
(If I add -nolock to XWin in startxwin.sh, it says invalid option. )
Then you are managing to mis-specify the option somehow, it is a valid one.
For future reference, X questions belong on the cygwin-xfree list.
