I have experienced the same problem with X on WinXP, almost every time I 
try to start XWin -multiwindow, XWin will hang after outputting: 
"winInitMultiWindowWM - Hello".

After some testing I have found out it only happends when I use 
-multiwindow and have enabled DOS (CR/LF) mode with the Cygwin installer.
