I'd just like to inform you guys that an OLD version of cygwin ( a 
version in 2002)
seems to work with the application "Opera" in 3D (running in Sun) that I 
last time.  But not the newest/latest cygwin.  ( If it's not clear, I'm 
cygwin in a Windows machine but I then ssh from cygwin to a Sun machine 
to start
the application "Opera". )

The XWin.log file is attached as last time.  I don't see any other error 
I hope somebody is willing to advise.   I can provide more information 
if somebody
lets me know what I need to do.
