I saw it twice, once in a Cygwin shell, the other time in a pop-up
window created by PuTTY. File is attached from last attempt.
There is no XWin.log, only XWinrl.log.
However, it may not be very useful, since when trying it his time,
the X server froze completely and I don't think it wrote anything
to the file at this point, considering the timestamp of the log file.

The text is pretty much exact (as seen with PuTTY):
Socket error: "no buffer space available".
There was an old entry in the mailing list archives, but nothing 
that helped me.

If you have a specific thing you want me to try I will do it,
even though it is a pain - every time this happens I need to
reboot so that I can send the e-mail out.
