I have found a workaround for the issue.  I didn't
want X to be a server to I used the "-nolisten tcp"
option.  Now, this option is executed successfully. 
However, it seems that this causes paste from windows
to fail.  If I start X without the "-nolisten tcp"
option, I am able to paste without any problems.

I don't want to run X as a server.  Can anyone explain
this behavior?
