RE: startxwin - xinit unable to connect to X server

I have the exact same problem - this after JUST upgrading my Xorg.
My X server was working PERFECTLY - for YEARS. Now just after newest version... :(
FYI: I'm running cygwin32 under XP.

Chris - I'd ask you check the date on your log file.

Because MY system is failing long before it touches the log!

I have an: Xwin.exe.stackdump:
$ cat /usr/bin/XWin.exe.stackdump

Exception: STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION at eip=7C917F82

Already checked - nothing newer than version 1.17.1-4; which is what is dumping for me.

Anyone know of a fix or workaround?
TIA - Bob

Subject: startxwin - xinit unable to connect to X server

After updating to the latest Cygwin distribution, I can no longer connect to X server. When I run startxwin (on a fresh Cygwin install), I get the following errors:

xinit: giving up
xinit: unable to connect to X server: Connection refused
xinit: server error

The XWin.#.log looks okay, I think (see attached).  I've set DISPLAY to :0.0.
