xwin produces flickery gray screen; cut/paste

Hi! I just installed Cygwin, including X, on my Windows2000
workstation. When I execute xwin, I get an awful-looking window, with
horizontal gray lines flickering annoyingly across the screen, which
is pretty much entirely taken up by this window. There's a big black
X in the middle of the screen. How do I fix this?
I got better results when I started X using startx. The only problem
with this option is that I don't seem to have any form of
cut-and-paste. The first few lines sent to the screen after I execute
Welcome to the XWin X Server
Vendor: The Cygwin/X Project
XWin was started with the following command line:
X :0 -multiwindow -clipboard
The mention of -clipboard above gave me the hope that cut & paste
would be possible, but I have not gotten it to work, neither between X
applications, nor between an X application and a Windows application.
Do I need to do anything special to get cut & paste to work?
