No. I have Cygwin installed on my PC, at G: drive. and my mount point looks
g:\cygwin / user binmode
g:\cygwin\usr /usr user binmode
and I have my X11R6 directory in g:\cygwin\usr, i.e.
G:\> cd cygwin\usr
Volume in drive G is Hunda
Volume Serial Number is 9046-0E8A
Directory of G:\cygwin\usr

When I cd to G:\cygwin\usr\X11R6\bin from console
and type startxwin
the xwin executes and server comes up in fullscreen mode.
