One idea would be to look at the source code of xemacs.
I presume that the copy and paste functions of xemacs (key combinations
Esc-W and C-y) are lisp functions which call directly or indirectly C API
Looking at these function calls would begin to shed light on the problem.

The other question on the cygwin side : what is the official or recommended
way of accessing the cut and paste buffer for an application written in C
(xemacs) and running under Windows+cygwin.

When we will have answers to both these questions, we can determine whether
- xemacs was using an undocumented feature of cygwin to interact with the
Windows cut and paste buffer, or whether the official cygwin API has
- other option : to the contrary, xemacs is programmed properly and there
has been a mistake in the code changes done in cygwin between 1.3.x and 1.5

I would be delighted to help, but I am busy at the moment, so I do not make
any promise.
