Of course, pointing to the new debug build would help:

I am beginning to think that the


has something to do with these crashes.  If I recall correctly, specifying a
display name such as :0.0 means that you should connect using UNIX domain
sockets, which are emulated in Cygwin using TCP/IP sockets.  We should
change XWin.exe to connect to DISPLAY= and see what happens.

You know... there may be an exit (1) being called in the multi-window
window-manager portions of the code that does not have an error message
being printed out before exit is called.  I will take a peek at the code.  I
suspect that the window manager is unable to connect, so it bails.

Erik --- will you be available to test a DEBUG build in the next few
