run.exe fails to start XWin in Windows 8.1

Dear cygwin maintainers:
While executing the command "Xwin Server" from Windows 8.1, the server won't start. Apparently, the executed command is
C:\cygwin64\bin\run.exe --quote /usr/bin/bash.exe -l -c "cd; /usr/bin/startxwin"
The file C:\cygwin64\run.exe.stackdump is produced. Instead I expect, however, an X server process and an xterm window.
On the other hand, starting first "Cygwin64 terminal" does create a text console shell, and running
from this shell does give me an X server process and an xterm window.
A complete removal of the C:\cygwin64 directory and reinstalling did not help. Afterwards, reinstalling xinit did not help.
This issue persists for a few months already. Last year, XWin started without problems.
(I tried to add attachments, but somehow the e-mails do not appear on the cygwin mailing list site.)
