If you are seeing delays of 30-60 seconds just starting cygwin, I would 
start with trying to figure that out before moving on the the problems with 
X.  Your unresponsive X server may be stuck on whatever is causing cygwin to 
delay starting up.

I don't understand what you mean "the prompt came alive and resized itslef." 
The cygwin shell shouldn't be resizing itself when you just open it up.

Perhaps try asking about this on the main cygwin list.
