X "server already running"?

I've rebooted after a crash (I'm on XP, something else took XP down, not
cygwin/X!), and now when I run startx I get a popup error message
telling me a fatal error has occurred and I should look at /tmp/XWin.log
for further info.
-- START /tmp/XWin.log --
_XSERVTransSocketINETCreateListener: ...SocketCreateListener() failed
_XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: server already running
Fatal server error:
Cannot establish any listening sockets - Make sure an X server isn't
winDeinitMultiWindowWM - Noting shutdown in progress
-- END /tmp/XWin.log --
I suspect a there's a pid file still hanging around for X from the
previous crashed session? I can't find one, and googling for a solution
turned up nothing useful.
Can anyone help? I hope so, I'm lost without cygwin / X / vim ! (Talking
of vim, if anyone can tell me how to paste into a cygwin/X/vim window
I'd be extremely grateful. My usual cumbersome workaround is to quit my
vim session and fire up gvim to do the paste!).
