Lockup Starting X

Hi Folks,
I just installed all the latest files from from Cygwin, including Xfree, 
just last night.

When I try to start X (using /usr/X11R6/bin/startxwin.sh), I see the X 
window open up, I can see a terminal window open up, but then my entire PC 
freezes up hard!  I've tried this a couple of times (last time with no 
other apps running except the normal startup stuff), and it still locks the 
PC hard each time (needing a reset/reboot to recover).

No errors visible, and I'm not sure if there is a log file regarding this 
(or where). I looked through this list, Google & Dejanews, but didn't see 
anyone else having a similar problem!

Does anyone have any ideas where I can look, or what's next in 
trouble-shooting this?

PC is a WinXP (sp1 + all patches), 768mb RAM, about 30g free on the drive 
that Cygwin runs from (and about 13g free on my boot drive). nVidia TNT 
card (the old, 16mb original).
