Even more important -- use the correct mailing list.

Personally, I'm amazed at the amount of trouble that the simple act of
un-bzip2ing a tar archive generates for the cygwin-xfree project but
they're somewhat used to dealing with these questions.

So, send email to the cygwin-xfree mailing list and they'll probably
help you.

Can I again suggest that people redirect X-related questions to this
mailing list?

I've Cc'd this message there and reset the reply-to so that replies should
go there as well.
