1.7.1 - problem with moving mouse programmatically with xte

I am using Cygwin/X 1.7.1 and I am running applications on this X
server from a Slackware virtual machine.

I am using xte v1.03 to move the mouse using keyboard shortcuts. Using
ion3 as the window manager.

When running e.g.
# xte 'mousermove +250 0'
the mouse cursor should move to the right; indeed, the window manager
changes focus as if moved to the right, but the cursor doesn't visibly
move. When mouse is moved, movement continues from the visible
location (the xte movement is 'forgot').

I am starting the X server with this command (inside startx.bat file
which is ran with bin/run.exe)
XWin -ac -clipboard -silent-dup-error

Note that the exact thing works perfectly with the stable 1.5 version.
Hope this helps identify a problem. Thank you for developing Cygwin/X.
