With recent upgrade of cygwin, emacs is always crashing. Windows XP

It was working last week. Now silent crash, no log entries.
Occassionally a core dump? No windows
I'm sorry, but I don't understand the relationship between the XP
virtual machines (running 32-bit Cygwin?) and the 64-bit Cygwin X server
running on a Windows 7 machine. Please give a detailed, step-by-step
recipe for producing the problem. And please attach cygcheck output as
Also, since you say this was working until your last Cygwin update,
maybe you could check /var/log/setup.log and/or /var/log/setup.log.full
to see which packages got updated. By reverting to previous versions
one at a time, you should be able to figure out which update broke
things for you.
Finally, if you decide that this is related to the recent X-server
updates (and you're sure you have the latest version installed), you'd
be better off asking for help on the cygwin-xfree list.
