Emacs silently fails to run after last cygwin update

I upgraded cygwin on both an XP and a Windows 7 box this week. In both
cases, the x windows version of emacs fails to start. In both cases the
X server is cygwin X running on the windows 7 box). I have tried
reinstalls on most of my cygwin packages on both hosts to no avail.
emacs-nox does run normally and reports version 24.2.1. "emacs -q" makes
no difference. No error is reported on the console. I have gdb on the
windows box - trying to run emacs gives a
> During startup program exited with code 0xc0000013.
I have no trouble firing up other x windows programs such as xterm,
xemacs, or the latest emacs from a linux virtual machine. All of the
boxes have all of the latest windows updates.
Emacs was working for me on these hosts a couple of weeks ago.
Downgrading emacs and emacs-x11 to 23.2.9 doesn't help.
Several internet searches and forum searches have not revealed anyone
else having this problem.
Does anyone know what the solution might be?
