Hi All,

I've just installed cygwin latest stable version, and after trying to
execute 'startx' it fails with some errors. I've tried several times,
and in the third time, a popup appeared saying XWin.exe crashed. Please
see below for the output of the startx command (no xwin crash this
time)... I'm running Windows Vista Business with latest patches also...

Any hint to make this X works, will be much appreciated.

$ startx
