Single DOS window

Actually, I found a simpler way that works with a slight modification to the
stock startxwin.bat file; use 'start /B' instead of 'start' for each of the
lines in startxwin.bat that launch an external application.  So, your file
might look a little something like the following:

start /B XWin -screen 0 800x600x8
start /B xterm -sl 1000 -sb -rightbar -ms red -fg yellow -bg black
start /B vtwm

This results in a single DOS prompt that still displays debugging messages
from XWin.exe.
