The X-startup-scripts package includes /usr/X11R6/bin/run which hides the console
window. Edit your link
c:/cygwin/usr/X11R6/bin/run.exe XWin.exe -query ... -nodecoration
You will most likely need the -nodecoration because run does hide the normal XWin
window too. This is a small bug which I've not been able to track down until now.
