Hi Maarten,

Sorry to see you are still having problems.

Can you start a cygwin bash shell, run "" and then copy and paste
the output into a mail? Also confirm that your keyboard doesn't work for you
when the X server is started in this fashion.

Oh, and satisfy my curiosity, are you really using a US keyboard, or a
Norwegian one?
