Xserver crashes

I'm using Windows 2000 and installed all files from the current
directory (version 17.7.00).
I've updated the cygwin1.dll to the current snapshot (22.7.00).

After I started the XServer with "xwin :0", I get some console messages:
_XSERVTransmkdir: Owner of /tmp/.X11-unix should be set to root
pwin->width = 00000500
pwin->height = 00000400
pwin->paddedWidth = 00000a00
pwin->bitsPerPixel = 00000010
calling winAllocateFramebufferMemory

and an Windows Popup-Window with the following error message:
"Direct Draw Init Failed
 Error = 80004001 (DIERR_UNSUPPORTED)"

The files rgb.txt, XErrorDB and XKeysymDB are located in
(where they should be after extracting the xc-4 binaries).

When I start dxdiag.exe from the Windows directory, I get the
that I've installed DirectX 7.0 (delivered with W2K).
I get the problem with 8, 16 and 24bit color-depth.

Why does the XServer crashes?
