Just tried the new 1.17.2-1 xorg-server - server starts fine, can open
windows, etc.

I also use Dexpot (http://www.dexpot.de) as a virtual desktop manager.
When I switch away from a desktop with X11 apps running in it and then
switch back, all of my windows have disappeared and their icons are no
longer in the taskbar.  If I open up a new window and check my
processes, the apps are still running.

I'll do some more debugging and report back, but I wanted to get an
FYI out.  dexpot + Cygwin X11 has worked flawlessly in previous
