Re: x-windows emacs crashing with latest updates

With recent upgrade of cygwin, emacs is always crashing. Windows XP
VirtualBox virtual machines (don't ask)

setup.exe version 2.8.50 (32 bit)

tried both emacs 24.3.93-1 and 24.3-2

X-server is cygin 64 bit on windows 7.

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 requested here:

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.
