So you said earlier that you were running ICE Window manager... Did you compile
(or acquire binaries) for the most recent version of ICE?  Have you tried twm
instead?  I am pretty sure that is packaged with the Cygwin/XFree binaries.  I
know twm is much smaller and less complex than ICE.  If it is not, do a quick
search through /usr/X11R6/bin for *wm*, and try to run one of the window
managers you already have.  Possibly ICE is the problem?

Just a thought,
