I've reproduced it.  That's a really annoying effect/issue you're seeing.  I've 
been waiting for the Cygwin X maintainer to respond.  I'm not familiar enough with 
X internals to know whether your patch is the most appropriate fix.

I will try to build the object you're patching, with your patch, and make that 
available to you as a workaround.  I'm assuming you haven't done that yourself 
just yet..  Give me a day or so to work it out.
