Thanks for reporting this issue. I can reproduce it.
This appears to be an issue with Xt, as a Cygwin-specific patch does not
work correctly on x86_64 when another DLL which is using Xt is loaded
>2GB away from it.
Until we have a fix, you *might* be able to work around this by rebasing
the DLLs, e.g. in the specific case of xterm, which uses Xaw:
rebase -v -b 0x400000000 cygXt-6.dll
rebase -v -b 0x410000000 cygXaw-7.dll
