Hmm.. not sure code is really needed.  You can see the output from startxwin
by running it from a terminal, or capture it by changing the shortcut which
runs it to something like the following (perhaps we should do that by default)

C:\cygwin\bin\run.exe /usr/bin/bash.exe -l -c '/usr/bin/startxwin.exe
>>/var/log/xwin/startxwin.log 2>&1'
