Xrdb 1.1.0 = 1 error in preprocessor - cygwin17 directory? Illegal control character

I updated my Cygwin today (1.7.27-2, 32bit cygwin on Windows 7 64bit).
I run the Cygwin/X Xserver 1.14.5-1
I get  errors with xrdb (1.1.0), and when I go back one version of xrdb (1.0.9), it works fine again.
And xrdb seems to think I installed Cygwin in c:\cygwin17, but my Cygwin is installed into c:\cygwin .

when I run xrdb now I get this:

% xrdb.exe -load $HOME/.Xresources
Can't open input file "/cygdrive/C/cygwin17/home/pbecker/.Xresources".
1 error in preprocessor.

% xrdb.exe -load ~/.Xresources
Can't open input file "/cygdrive/C/cygwin17/home/pbecker/.Xresources".
1 error in preprocessor.

% pwd
/home/pbecker

% echo $HOME
/home/pbecker

% echo ~
/home/pbecker

% cygpath -aw .
C:\cygwin\home\pbecker

% xrdb -load  ./.Xresources

[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: xorg-server-1.15.0-2 (TEST)

The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

*** xorg-server-*1.15.0-2

These packages contain XWin and the other X.Org X11 servers.

This is the first release of the xserver 1.15 series.  It is currently
available as a test release, and will be made stable in approximately two
weeks if no major regressions are reported.

Please try test releases and report problems to the Cygwin/X mailing list.
Testing helps ensure good releases!

The following cygwin-specific changes have been made since 1.15.0-1:

* Fix a crash which could occur when a GL client exits without deleting it's
GL contexts
* Don't create fbConfigs for un-accelerated pixelFormats provided by the
generic renderer.  (This is a workaround for some GL clients ending up
preferring them)

Problem opening remote X applications

I just downloaded Cygwin 64-bit for the first time.  I've been using 
Cygwin 32-bit for years.

I'm running on Windows 7, and my Cygwin 32-bit has been working 
reasonably well for a long time.  My only issue with it was a problem it 
had with my Caps Lock key.  For whatever reason, focus would switch 
windows whenever I pressed the Caps Lock key.  The caps would lock, but 
focus would change.

I finally decided to download the latest and greatest to see if it has 
been fixed.  It appears that it is no longer an issue.  Now I have a new 
problem.

I usually "ssh -X <remote>" to a remote Linux machine.  I can then read 
mail (thunderbird), edit documents (LibreOffice 3.x), run Chrome, and 
edit programs (Emacs).  I'll have half a dozen windows open through the 
X tunnel provided by ssh.  Works well and lasts for hours.

After upgrading to Cygwin 64-bit (this last weekend), everything *seems* 
to be okay for a while.  After about 20 minutes, though, I can no longer 
open windows remotely.  Even though I have thunderbird currently open, 
when I try to run Chrome, I get "(google-chrome:20006): Gtk-WARNING **: 
cannot open display: localhost:10.0".  If I try to open xclock from the 
command line, I get:

xclock
Error: Can't open display: localhost:10.0

Does anybody know what happened?  Why has the tunnel disappeared? It 
hasn't actually disappeared because I'm still running thunderbird

Re: gtk+ applications crash when filechooser opened

Hello,
	Has anyone found a resolution to this problem?  I've been searching for 
weeks now and haven't been able to find a solution.  My Cygwin 
installation has been broken ever since.

	Thanks!

[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: xorg-server-1.14.5-1


The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

*** xorg-server-*1.14.5-1

These packages contain XWin and the other X.Org X11 servers.

In addition to upstream fixes [1], this contains the following cygwin-specific
changes since 1.14.4-2:

* [source] Fix compilation issues due to wglext.h from current w32api-headers
being older than current khronos-opengl-registry, by only generating wrappers
for used WGL functions, rather than for all WGL functions in the khronos registry.
* Add Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows XP x64 to the list of
Windows versions we know the name of
