  Hi Alex , Please find below the output of gethostbyname. Sorry to 
respond a little bit late but I was on vacation .
$ gethostbyname icc68651
hostname: icc68651

By the way i have downloaded the XFREE86 package and I have the same 
problem on the second XWIN . This installation was done on a plain 
machine . I guess it is a CYGWIN change that triggered this behaviour.

How can we proceed .
THanks for ur help
