I'm experiencing the same problem with XEmacs 21.4.13, compiled
myself from CVS sources with X support enabled (using 1.3.22).

(See <> for my post
about the problem.)

One work-around I've discovered is to start XEmacs from an rxvt
window instead of directly from bash.  That fixes the problem for
me.  I use the following shortcut for starting XEmacs:

  start /min c:\cygwin\bin\rxvt -T "start XEmacs" -e /bin/bash --login -i -c "DISPLAY= /usr/local/bin/xemacs &"

This causes a minimized rxvt window to be created, but it quickly
goes away once XEmacs starts starting.
