I just posted Test 74 to the server development page:

You can install the Test 74 package via setup.exe by selecting the
'test' package (and be sure to check the 'Bin' box): XFree86-xserv-4.2.0-22

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) xc/lib/xtrans/Xtransutil.c - Remove Cygwin-specific defines of
fchown and fchmod to chown and chmod, respectively.  It is not clear
when these were added, but they are certainly no longer needed and are
likely the cause of the first segfault that occurs if you debug
XWin.exe under gdb.  (Takashi Sawanaka)

2) Remove the condition variable used in the startup of the threaded
clipboard manager and multi-window window manager; the condition
variable was not needed and actually caused a race condition that
could prevent either manager from starting up.  Instead, just use a
mutex to hold the threads until the server has started, at which point
the mutex is unlocked.  (Harold Hunt)

3) winmultiwindowwm.c, winclipboardthread.c - Remove calls to
_Xsetlocale and replace them with calls to setlocale, since
_Xsetlocale is just defined to be setlocale.  (Kensuke Matsuzaki)

4) Fix a problem where the server window would shrink each time the
server was reset.  This problem only happened in non-rootless,
non-fullscreen, non-nodecoration, and non-scrollbars modes.  In other
words, it only happened when you ran the X Server in a single window
that had a window border but no scrollbars.  (Harold Hunt)
