Do you have any suggestions on a solution?

I have no idea why this would occur or how to troubleshoot these scenarios.

The console keeps returning the font error. 

Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID/, removing from li
st!
winPointerWarpCursor - Discarding first warp: 509 353
winProcEstablishConnection - Hello
winProcEstablishConnection - Clipboard is not enabled, returning.
cat: /home/neville/.Xauthority: No such file or directory

waiting for X server to shut down FreeFontPath: FPE "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/mi
sc/" refcount is 2, should be 1; fixing.
winDeinitMultiWindowWM - Noting shutdown in progress


This link gave me some insight, yet it did not resolve my main problem.

 http://x.cygwin.com/docs/faq/cygwin-x-faq.html#q-error-font-eof

Apparently, mount does not list any mount points for /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts 
on my installation. 

$ mount
C:\cygwin\bin on /usr/bin type system (binmode)
C:\cygwin\lib on /usr/lib type system (binmode)
C:\cygwin on / type system (binmode)
c: on /cygdrive/c type system (binmode,noumount)
d: on /cygdrive/d type system (binmode,noumount)
e: on /cygdrive/e type system (binmode,noumount)

$ umount /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts
umount: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts: No such file or directory
