No one confirmed your problem, as described in your initial posting. Did nobody
care, or did the problem only exist at your place?

I became curious ...

I do not use X! (on Cygwin).

Therefore I created a separate (basic) Cygwin installation, where I added xinit,
xorg-server and xterm only!

Next I started xterm as follows:

    64-++ startx /usr/bin/xterm -geometry 140x50+530+180 -- -rootless

The problem occured when using cywin1.dll 0712 (as expected), but not when using
cygwin1.dll 3.0.7 or cygwin1.dll 0722.

I concluded, that your problem does not occur w/ a "basic" X configuration.
