I'm still not entirely sure what process in running in this window you
complain of.  Can you be say what the title and contents of this window are?

I'm also not sure if this problem is related to he X server at all.  Can you
try creating a shortcut which runs the following command, for example, and see
if the bash window is always successfully hidden?

C:\cygwin\bin\run.exe /usr/bin/bash.exe -l -c "sleep 10"
