This is not working well for me. I've tested on both 32-bit and 64-bit
Cygwin with no .startxwinrc and no .[xX]* files, and I've tested on two
different computers (both running Windows 7). I started the X server
via the new start menu shortcut.
What happens is that a band appears across the bottom of the screen
(full width), hiding about 2/3 of the taskbar. This makes it impossible
to access the icons on the right side of the taskbar. Also, there's no
X icon in the upper left corner of the screen. But there is a large X
icon in the taskbar, partially visible above the band, and when I mouse
over it, I see a little window that says "X panel". Closing this window
makes the band go away. So I guess this band is the miniature fbpanel
referred to above, but it's appearing in the wrong place.
I don't see anything suspicious in XWin.0.log, but .xsession-errors
says, "fbpanel: Fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on
X server :0.". But this only appears after I've exited the server, so
maybe it's normal.
Finally, ~/.config/fbpanel/multiwindow exists but is empty.
