XWin too slow to start

For years I have been using fvwm2 and cygwin, but today it stopped working.

The only way I could get it to work again was to insert a 'sleep 15' between:

XWin -clipboard -rootless -silent-dup-error &

sleep 15

fvwm2 &

Without the sleep, fvwm2 actually executes first but has no X server
to connect to.
What is causing XWin to startup so slow ?
