Every few minutes or so (e.g. 10 minutes?) 3 dialog boxes sequentially
appear in Windows: the Xfree86 fullscreen is minimised to do this. The
dialog box is entitled 'Error' and the message is 'Shell_NofifyIcon Fail'.

 I am using w2k with the following command line (from a Windows shortcut):
C:\cygwin\usr\X11R6\bin\XWin.exe -fullscreen -nowinkill -once -query
jeeves -xkbmap gb

 My screen is 1600x1200x24bpp Nvidia (DirectDraw - the latest - DirectX 8.1,
I think).

 This error is usually associated with a shell icon (those little ones by
the clock), switch back to windows reveals an ordinary minimised button with
no icon, not a shell icon.

 The version of Cywin/xfree is the latest release, non-development issue,
which corresponds to the latest 4.2.0 of Xfree.
