huh? bash from Cygwin is not an X application and
will not display on Xdesktoip.

What you are getting is no such file error.... it means something is
My best bet is you are missing /bin/sh, xterm uses sh
by defaultand /bin/sh path is hardcoded in source code...

I think you have mixed up X11R6 for Cygwin
and X11 for MSVC.... a cocktail will
give you all kind of errors and warnings.
