The snapshot 20120321 05:29:25 UTC has still the following problems:

1) (most important for me): xinit does not launch
I tried with both xorg-server 1.11.4 and 1.12.0 (TEST) with the
same message:
/usr/bin/xinit: giving up
/usr/bin/xinit: unable to connect to X server: Connection refused
/usr/bin/xinit: server error

This occurs immediately after:
(EE) AIGLX: No native OpenGL in modes with a root window
(II) AIGLX: Loaded and initialized swrast
(II) GLX: Initialized DRISWRAST GL provider for screen 0

and the following does not show up (compared with snapshot 20120314):

winPointerWarpCursor - Discarding first warp: 696 497
(--) 5 mouse buttons found
(--) Setting autorepeat to delay=500, rate=31

2) The /usr/bin/man program does not function properly.

Under Cygwin.bat console (with "bash --login -i"):

% man tr
hit space a few times (5 times in my case) unless you obtain "(END)"
then 'q' to exit the program. The /usr/bin/man exits but the prompt
does not appear again and the shell is stuck.

I had to return to snapshot 20120314, sorry.

Best regards,

Denis Excoffier.
