Thank you for following up, Jon!

The title of the window in question is StartXWin.
It has no perceivable content - I cannot de-iconize it.
Its only real evidence on the screen is the task bar icon.

I see no window (well, it flashes for a brief moment) and no icon.
The bash runs -- I can see it in the task manager, and then it goes
away after the appointed 10 seconds.

My StartXWin shortcut has:

Shortcut panel:
target: C:\cygwin\bin\run.exe /bin/bash -l -c "/bin/startxwin -- -unixkill -clipboard -multimonitors 
-resize -engine 1 -emulate3buttons 100 -wm -auth /home/Eliot/.Xauthority"
Start in: C:\cygwin\bin
Shortcut key: none
Run: Normal window
Comment: blank
Advanced...: Run as admin not checked

General panel: nothing interesting

Compatibility panel: nothing checked

Security panel: nothing adjusted

Other panels have nothing adjustable

This is starting to look like some kind of race as xorg-server is starting ..
