selection to clipboard in xterm

a couple of weeks ago I installed cygwin (1.7.5) on
my new Win7-PC.
On my old XP-PC the xterm-selection was a highly
appreciated function to make some text accessible
in the windows clipboard by simply highlighting it
with the mouse, but with my new PC that does not
work any more. Selections do not affect the content
of the clipboard.
Checking/unchecking the "Select to Clipboard" item
under "VT Options" does not change anything.
Any idea what the problem is and how I could get
this working?
Thanks for any support.
