Run a Cygwin (X) app from a DOS command line

Is it possible to run a Cygwin GUI app (i.e. requiring 'X') from a DOS
terminal, as opposed to a bash terminal?  After starting the X server
I tried  "cygstart path/to/my/program" but nothing happened.  The app
runs fine if I start it from a bash terminal.
