Re: run.exe fails to start XWin in Windows 8.1

While executing the command "Xwin Server" from Windows 8.1, the server

The file C:\cygwin64\run.exe.stackdump is produced. Instead I expect,
however, an X server process and an xterm window.

On the other hand, starting first "Cygwin64 terminal" does create a text
console shell, and running
startxwin      &

from this shell does give me an X server process and an xterm window.

A complete removal of the C:\cygwin64 directory and reinstalling did not
help. Afterwards, reinstalling xinit did not help.

This issue persists for a few months already. Last year, XWin started
without problems.

Unfortunately, the stackdump in your previous report [1] didn't quite contain enough information to investigate this problem. I've made a small improvement in how the stackdumps are made [2] since then, so if you can upgrade and provide the stackdump file, perhaps we can discover why this crash is happening.
