I used my patch from 2011 every day for the last three years and it 
worked always without any problems. I was also able to incorporate this 
patch into the newest cygwin x server running under 64-bit cygwin 
without any problems.

I don't understand, why this patch was not included into the official 
cygwin-x-server. Of course it would be nice, if a better solution was 
available. For pragmatic reasons it would be nice to include this patch 
into official cygwin x server until a better solution is available.
