No! The XWin.exe was tested with Cygwin 1.1.1 and worked just fine.
Which version of Cygwin do you have installed? Are there more then
one cygwin1.dll in the PATH? Try renaming the Cygwin1.dll, if any
in /usr/X11R6/bin to cygwin1.dll-bak, then restart X using startxwin batch
If still same problem, then maybe your cygwin1.dll in cygwin install
to be updated to a newest one?
