Cygwin 1.7 hangs with my .xinitrc

Thanks for the work around, seems to work ok.
One more detail about this I just remembered...
On Cygwin 1.5 version, some of the windows that I bring up don't seem to
know their own size. I always seem to have to resize some of the
windows (particularly on the second virtual screen) and then
run 'ls' to see if the resize took. The sleep may help somewhat here
but I still have to resize a window or two.

> I have had `sleep 1` statements after each xterm launch in my .xinitrc for years, having encountered a similar problem. At least I'm pretty sure it was a similar problem... yes, I should have reported it then.
