I have been working with cygwin/X  under Win95 for more than 2 years
without too much problem. Lately, from cygwin1 1.5.6 up to 1.5.9 there
was a bug with threads that crashed XWin -multiwindow. This problem was
solved in the more recent snapshots. As I understand that there are
difficulties to check the new software in Win95, I have decided to try
all new snapshots and versions of XWin as soon as possible.
