Could you please verify the following regarding X11R6.x problems you
with ReflectionX?

1) Were the errors you reported relates to using XTERM.exe?

2) Or, was it one of your application you compiled with Cygwin B20.1
and now attempting to use on Cygwin v 1.0 CD Release?

3) Did adding /etc/hosts entry help?

I found a few socket related bugs in libX11.dll but I am not
really sure they were the cause of problems you reported.

I could use Xterm and all the clients from
cygwin-xfree-4.0-cygwin-v-1.tar.bz2 with Exceed server.  The Clients
work fiune for me with Cygwin v 1.0 and also Cygwin Developemnt

Xterm may give the following warnings:

bash-2.03$ ./xterm
Warning: locale not supported by C library, locale unchanged
Warning: locale not supported by Xlib, locale set to C
Warning: X locale modifiers not supported, using default
Failed to open input method

This is because xterm code in XFree86 4.0 has changed and it uses
X Input routines from XFree86 4.0.  These warnings are due to the
fact we still do not have XFree86 X-server.  However, these are
warnings and should not cause a crash or _X11TransSock Errno.
