On cygwin, some of the socket interface is emulated by using loopbacks
on internet sockets, so Xwin, Xinit, and several other programs need to
have access to the internet, and Xwin needs server rights. If server
rights are denied, xterm would not have been able to connect to the X
server (and might have attempted to reinvoke xinit...I'm not sure
whether there is any special handling in there).
Did you check ZA before uninstalling to make sure you hadn't blocked access?
