I think i have run in to a similiar problem with XTerm not reading the
app-defaults file.
I've deleted the cygwin directory and reinstalled it several times, and
sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't load up the XTerm defaults file.
I then noticed that in the directory:
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults/ there is a simlink 'app-defaults' that
somtimes points to the /etc/X11/app-defaults/ directory, and sometimes it
just points to /etc/X11/ if you remake the simlink to /etc/X11/app-defaults/
it seems to load the XTerm file then.
