usually the log files are attached not pit in line

as usual for
"Run cygcheck -s -v -r > cygcheck.out and include that file as an 
attachment in your report. Please do not compress or otherwise encode 
the output. Just attach it as a straight text file so that it can be 
easily viewed."

Assuming that the GL driver is unable to manage correctly
your driver, you can try to disable the hardware acceleration

startxwin -- -nowgl -multiwindow

After that I am afraid you need to wait Jon's support.
