While installing the TEST version of Cygwin, a "next" was clicked too soon and these 'xorg' packages were installed. OK.

The fact is that I have some X apps which I run from command line (MinTTY) as in this example:

$ DISPLAY= ./libXbgi_helios_orbits.out

Obviously, I have already started the X server, from a link on tool bar, being

target: C:\cygwin64\bin\run.exe --quote bash -l -c "rm -rf /tmp/.X*; XWin -multiwindow -clipboard -silent-dup-error 2>/dev/null &"

But with this 1.7.1 release, I get always:

  Cannot connect to X server

even if the X server is running (the X icon on sys-tray, with all its items menu if one right clicks..)

Reverting to 1.6 fixes the issue...
