I have had awful troubles using XWin with -clipboard.  I don't think
I am doing anything odd with the XP clipboard AFAIK.  Using -clipboard
crashes various applications (tgif) and gives performance issues in 
others (LyX)

I tried a re-install for xwin but it seems to give me the version 
from February, (20090222)

Looking at the package list for cygwin, it appears the xwin package
is obsolete?  

What am I doing wrong?
