winCheckDisplayNumber - Cygwin/X is already running on display 0

Fatal server error:
InitOutput - Duplicate invocation on display number: 0.  Exiting.

This means you have started XWin twice. You can't do that. Only start XWin
(or start or startxwin.bat or simlar scripts) once. If you wan't another 
terminal window then run it from a bash shell, from the start menu entry 
or from the already running terminal window.
