With an older version of Cygwin I had constructed a cut down

 It was about 40Mb, installed.

This approach is not working well at all for the current release.  Last
time around I just tossed things into a folder to temporarily hide them,
and by process of elimination winnowed it down to that small size.  This
time there are many, many, MANY more dll's that are required for the
server to start, at least  via this method:

C:\cygwinX\bin\run.exe --quote /usr/bin/bash.exe -l -c "cd; exec

For instance, cyggtk-x11-2.0.0.dll.  Take it out and the X11 server does
not start.
That dll, according to "ldd" has everything but the kitchen sink linked
into it.  It isn't linked directly into the server though, it is needed
for "xwin-xdg-menu.exe",
an accessory program, which if removed from /usr/bin, also results in
the server not starting.

look on

It is calling xwin-xdg-menu
