Problem with Alt-key not being recognized after X Server window loses focus

  Recently the X11 server window stopped recognizing the 'Alt' key after 
I changed focus to another Windows XP window.  When I start the X Server 
(xinit), the system recognizes when I press down 'Alt'.  However if I 
then just click outside the X server window on the Windows XP desktop, 
and then back to the X server window, 'Alt' stops working.  (I'm running 
fvwm and use Alt-mouse-1 to move windows.  This works fine until focus 
is lost for the first time.)

  I don't know exactly when this started, but I've updated cygwin with 
the latest X packages and the problem still persists.  I am running 
Windows XP on a Thinkpad T60p.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
