Hi Jon,

Your suspician was correct. I was launching my main cygwin
installation with the start menu shortcut (`C:\cygwin\bin\mintty.exe
-i /Cygwin-Terminal.ico -`), but I was launching the X.org 1.16 cygwin
installation by double-clicking C:\cygwin-xorg16\cygwin.bat. Thus I
was running my X.org 1.16 cygwin installation with cmd.exe.

When I launched my X.org 1.16 Cygwin installation by running
`C:\cygwin-xorg16\bin\mintty.exe -i /Cygwin-Terminal.ico -`, this
issue was resolved.
