I wanted to share some of my experiences when upgrading to cygwin 1.7.1:
XWin would not start, /var/log/XWin.0.log reporting the following error:
"(EE) Error compiling keymap (server-0)"

After some time, I figured out the source of the problem:
/bin/sh disappeared:  this was fixed with " ln -s /bin/bash /bin/sh "

Another problem related to fonts was fixed by " mkfontdir "
