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

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

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
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
an accessory program, which if removed from /usr/bin, also results in
the server not starting.
It is calling xwin-xdg-menu
