Thanks. However, I seems something is wrong somewhere.
With my usual command (i.e. "startx -- -screen 0 1200 900") X runs OK,
although I just noticed that I get some feedback relating to clipboard
in the main cygwin window (see
When I first tried "startx -- -screen 0 1200 900 -clipboard" some
clipboard error messages appeared - see
I just tried the same command again. This time there are no clipboard
error messages (see

clipboard still doesn't work.
