That's odd. I can't really understand how that can happen. I'd suspect that
startxwin is failing to fork/exec Xwin successfully, possibly due to an
application causing cygwin difficulties  (Unfortunately, 64-bit Windows
itself seems to sometimes cause similar problems)
Are you able to start the server directly by running 'XWin'?
