Cygwin is basically an X11 build?

Correct me if I am wrong, but I think you can also build an Emacs as a w32 application with cygwin?

Thanks.  Of course you are right in that it does not exactly help that
Cygwin Gtk+ appears to crash.

I have no idea whether this should be considered a general
showstopper.  Probably depends on how many people would consider the
platform Cygwin/Gtk+ a "natural" choice.

If it is not a showstopper, then Cygwin/Gtk+ should likely lead to a
strong warning upon configuration, and not be the default for Cygwin.

I am all for having Gtk as the default. As pointed out, Gnome is the preferred GNU desktop environment. The cygwin issue may still be fixable, there was a suggestion on the cygwin mailing list that a different link order might solve this. However, I have no time to try this until the weekend. For now, I just added a note in etc/PROBLEMS. If the link order doesn't work I will add some stuff to configure so cygwin + Gtk gives a warning.
