X on win 7

I have a new Dell Dimension M6600 with Windows 7 SP 1.  I have disabled 
the Windows firewall and added rules to allow programs in cygwin and 
cygwin\bin to run.

I am using cygwin 1.7.9  (I also use older cygwins on many 32-bit Windows 

On this machine, X runs badly: often very slowly, and frequently with 
crashes as well.  A couple of times I was forced to reboot the machine -- 
Windows appeared unresponsive.

I did try rebaseall, but did not help (in fact had to reinstall cygwin).

I have seen some posts on this topic, but no definitive workaround.

Any help welcome.
