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.
