You need to do a general update of Cygwin by rerunning Cygwin's
setup.exe and letting it upgrade updated packages.
For example, the XFree86-xserv package is now at version 4.3.0-50; you
have version 4.3.0-20 installed. Let me just say that *substantial*
changes in functionality have been made in those last 30 releases.
If you still have the same problems after upgrading, feel free to reask
