The version of XFree86-xserv is important. Options for
XWin.exe are also good information.

I assume you mention twm and tested using .twmrc containing
only the line you showed. It looks raiselower is working
correctly on the release-44 server with no option given.

I also tried the F1 case and got success.

I suspect that you are using a too old version of Cygwin/X
or your .twmrc has some errors.
