Hi Marco,

With a little delay i made some experiments as suggested by you
(disclaimer: i know that top posting is frowned upon in this group but
here it goes):
PATH=/usr/bin startxwin
-> only one xinit (started from mintty / bash)
startxwin -- -listen tcp -nowgl
-> same (only one)
C:\Programs\Cygwin\bin\run.exe --quote /usr/bin/bash.exe -l -c "cd; exec
/usr/bin/startxwin -- -listen tcp -nowgl"
two xinitS are started (started from cmd)
Tested on my business laptop with Windows 1903 latest and Cygwin latest
No .startxwinrc and no modification of /etc/X11/xinit/startxwinrc
With the cmd / run / quote variant also two xinitS on my private
notebook with Windows 1909 latest and Cygwin latest
But the cmd / run / quote exercise gives only ane xinit on my private
desktop (again Windows 1909 latest and Cygwin latest)?
In fact i start not via cmd but using a desktop icon / link.
The extra arguments are for starting WSL X11 clients.
LC_ALL=de_DE.utf8 (all three)
To be continued

Franz
