Karl, you might want to try reverting to the previous version of
libharfbuzz0 and libfreetype6. I'm running into problems with those
libraries on the 32-bit version of cygwin, causing occasional crashes of
xterm, and frequent crashes of xwin-xdg-menu under Windows 10. I'm just
wondering if your issue is related to those same problems in these
libraries, only it's manifesting differently under the 64-bit version of
cygwin. It may be a long-shot, but if our experiences corroborate each
other it might help nail down these font-related issues.
In any case, check to see if there's an xterm.exe.stackdump file in the
directory from which you ran xterm. If there is, try running something
like "strace xterm.exe > xterm.log" and see what xterm is doing before
Hope this helps.

This message only gets printed when I use my favorite xterm options: "-fg
white -bg black -sl 5000" No other output is printed, and xterm exits with
RC=0. Other locally run X programs work fine, such as xeyes and emacs.
What can I do to debug this?
