When selecting "Cygwin-X -> XWin Server" in the start menu, X does not
start and I get the following /var/log/XWin.0.log ...

/usr/bin/XWin -multiwindow -clipboard -silent-dup-error

ddxProcessArgument - Initializing default screens

Fatal server error:

And you're sure there is no X-server running already?  Is there an icon
for it in the right corner of the task bar?
