Updated today and X is broken on XP.  Starting a window with the cygwin.bat file then executing /bin/startxwin.exe
$ !492

/bin/startxwin: giving up
/bin/startxwin: unable to connect to X server: Connection refused
/bin/startxwin: server error

I had one message about not finding .Xauthority which now exists but is an empty file.  Running from the shortcut in "Start Menu\Programs\Cygwin-X" 

H:\cygwin\bin\run.exe /usr/bin/bash.exe -l -c /usr/bin/startxwin.exe

Temporarily has an icon in the tray that then vanishes.
