Apologies. Outlook wrapped the startxwin.sh included in the below message.
Here it is adjusted.

#! /bin/sh

# A user has reported that setting DISPLAY to the actual 
hostname # gives the X Server an increase in responsiveness.  
We will # give this a try and see if it causes and problems. 
# Use DISPLAY= if you have problems. # Harold - 
2002/05/08 export DISPLAY=$HOSTNAME:0.0 PATH=/usr/X11R6/bin:$PATH

eval `ssh-agent`

# Cleanup from last run.
rm -rf /tmp/.X11-unix

# Startup the X Server, the twm window manager, and an xterm.
# Notice that the window manager and the xterm will wait for
# the server to finish starting before trying to connect; the
# error "Cannot Open Display:" is not due to the
# clients attempting to connect before the server has started, rather
# that error is due to a bug in some versions of cygwin1.dll.  Upgrade
# to the latest cygwin1.dll if you  get the "Cannot Open Display" error.
# See the Cygwin/XFree86 FAQ for more information:
# http://xfree86.cygwin.com/docs/faq/
# the error "Fatal server error: could not open default font 'fixed'" is
# caused by using a DOS mode mount for the mount that the Cygwin/XFree86
# fonts are accessed through.  See the Cygwin/XFree86 FAQ for more 
# information:


# Start the X Server.
#XWin -clipboard -rootless -nodecoration -lesspointer -fp "$fontpath" &
XWin  -multiwindow &
#xset fp+ "/cygdrive/c/WINNT/FONTS"

# Set a background color to hide that nasty X stipple. #xsetroot -solid

# Start an xterm.
xterm -geometry +170+113 -sl 1000 -sb -rightbar -ms red -fg yellow -bg black
-e /usr/bin/bash &

xterm -fn 10x20 -geometry +16+512 &
xterm -geometry -75+113 &

# Start the twm window manager.
#twm &

# Return from sh.
