	Like Suhaib, I did not know that the color depth had to be 8 bits. 
On a Windows NT 4.0 (SP5) machine, I set my display to have and 8 bit 
color depth. I then executed the bat file:

@echo off
SET PATH=%PATH%;C:\cygwin\usr\X11R6\bin;C:\cygwin\bin
XWin -screen 0 128x128x8 -whitepixel 255 -blackpixel 0

and got:

_XSERVTransmkdir: Owner of /tmp/.X11-unix should be set to root
Desired pwin->width = 00000080
Desired pwin->height = 00000080
Desired pwin->paddedWidth = 00000080
Desired pwin->bitsPerPixel = 00000008

Fatal server error:
Couldn't add screen 0
