we had this in the " XWin w/out -nodecoration running in 
background doesn't display anything" thread. At least to get rid of the 
extra window, i don't know if this changes the hotkey problem.

One solution was:
\cygwin\usr\X11R6\bin\run.exe bash -c -l "Xwin.exe -query SOMENAME &"

If you don't have the cygwin dirs in path:
\cygwin\bin\bash.exe -c -l 'run bash -c -l "CYGWIN=server Xwin.exe 
-query murpel -fp tcp/murpel:7100 -dpi 100 -clipboard -once &" '
