You are running a quite old version of Cygwin/X. Meanwhile there have been
many changes to the clipboard code regarding stability and integration into
the xserver. The xwinclip development has been discontinued.

I'm afraid, but the only useful solution is to upgrade the Cygwin/X packages
and to use the integrated clipboard manager.

They are now called xorg-x11-* and supersede the XFree86-* packages.
