"cygcheck -f /usr/X11R6/bin/XWin.exe" reports "xorg-x11-xwin-188.8.131.52-2",
but "XWin -version" says "Release: 184.108.40.206-1".

I definitely don't want -multiwindow or -rootless (just a matter of
personal taste), but "XWin -nodecoration" seems to work. In fact,
"-fullscreen" and "-nodecoration" seem to work nearly the same, except
that "-nodecoration" doesn't have the alt-tab problem. What's the
difference between them?
