I just posted Test 73 to the server development page:

You can install the Test 73 package via setup.exe by selecting the
'test' package (and be sure to check the 'Bin' box): XFree86-xserv-4.2.0-21

Server Test Series binary and source code releases are now
available via the sources.redhat.com ftp mirror network
(http://cygwin.com/mirrors.html) in the
pub/cygwin/xfree/devel/shadow/ directory.  You may wish to note the
desired filename in the links below, then download from your
closest mirror (http://cygwin.com/mirrors.html).

1) Preliminary integration of the ``xwinclip'' functionality
into the main server executable.  This functionality is accessible via
the ``-clipboard'' command-line parameter.  (Harold Hunt)

2) Delay the execution of the Multi-Window Window Manager thread
until the X Server has finished starting up.  (Harold Hunt)

3) Restructure the way that the Multi-Window Window Manager handles
fatal errors.  Return FALSE when we encounter an initialization error
so that the server can make a clean exit, instead of aborting
immediately by calling exit (1).  For later errors, call pthread_exit
(NULL) instead of exit (1) so that only the Multi-Window Window
Manager aborts; there is no need to kill the X Server process since
work could still be recovered without the window manager module.
(Harold Hunt)

4) Destroy the pthread mutex and condition variables, used for
synchronization in the Multi-Window Window Manager, upon X Server
exit.  (Harold Hunt)
