Can't remember exactly, but, some time ago (>1 year), it happened to me 
to have problems with Window Maker in a new installation of Cygwin.

It seems to me that I was unable to access the WMaker preferences, 
anyway I solved creating a link or two: try to start Window Maker by 
hand from a terminal, so to have a look at its output/trace and whether 
it misses some file/directory.
