What versions of Emacs, XWin, and Cygwin are you talking about?  When I
install all of Cygwin 1.5.18 (including the X stuff), Emacs (under X) crashes
on startup (a window comes up and then crashes when I wiggle the mouse) and
XEmacs  (under X) crashes on exit.  This is on MS-Windows XP (SP2).

I use the latest version of cygwin, updated in the past few days (although this problem has been around for months now). also using the latest version of gnu emacs from cvs.
