Can anyone help in this issue?

What do you mean by "multiwindow mode"?  Multi-monitor?  If so, do you see
this behaviour with XINERAMA (aka PanoramiX) enabled (default), or disabled?

"multiwindow" is basically an option while starting the Xserver which
will start an integrated Windows based Window Manager.
It is used in the following way in the command for starting the Xserver.
run XWin -multiwindow -clipboard -silent-dup-error

So, you're running on Cygwin. I can't help you there. Maybe someone else will pipe in.
