Are you running Cygwin/X on a terminal server or any other
system where more than one user can be logged on? Then most likely
another user has already started XWin. To be able to start XWin
when another user is already running it, change the startup in
startxwin.bat from XWin <some options> to XWin :1 <same options>
and adjust the string for display accordingly (from :0.0 to :1.0).
