That's the main problem and I can't figure out why it associates white with
anything that doesn't have all the bits set in the RGB colorspec.
OK, let's focus on this problem.
Your original report, written on February 22, said that the problem
started after the latest Cygwin update. That means you would have
installed emacs-25.1, if Emacs was updated at all. But I've just
checked that the problem already exists in emacs-24.5. So maybe the
problem was triggered by an update of some package other than Emacs,
Mintty being the most obvious guess. Can you check your
/var/log/setup.log to see what was updated around February 22?
