Serious X problem, cannot start xterm.
Sat Dec 10 06:04:00 GMT 2005
Gerrit, did you try running the "startxwin.bat" file too from Windows?
That's what I do, i run an icon from Windows XP desktop, and it runs XWin
and then Ice so the first teminal window I see is rxvt (or xterm), not the
Windows managed "cmd.exe" window
