This depends on how you start Cygwin/X. If you use startxwin.sh, just
edit it and put the xset command right after the XWin invocation (though
beware that the file will get overwritten every time you update
X-startup-scripts). If you use "startx", you should be able to put it in
your ~/.xinitrc or ~/.xserverrc...
