X server doesn't start with a empty .startxwinrc

Hi all, 

I need you help to understand what's wrong with X server or my .startxwinrc
file.

I work with X server -> Xterm and vim since month now. Every thing was
always working perfectly.

Yesterday I upgraded all cygwin packages and just after that I was unable to
start X server again.

I made a new fresh installation and X server works correctly. Then I made a
copy of my olds files like .startwinrc, .bashrc .vimrc and all my shortcuts.
When I tried to start the X server I had the same problems. X server crashed.

I removed one by one all the files I copied up to I deleted .startxwinrc.
Then the X server start correctly. my .startxwinrc had only 3 lines with :

xterm -bg Black -fg White&

I deleted all the lines just to have a blank .startxwinrc. But X server
still crashes.

Here is the log when I run startxwin from terminal with an empty
.startxwinrc file

I don't understand what I did wrong as it was working fine before.

Thank you

startxwin.exe no longer exists?

For several years now I have been starting X windows by clicking on an
icon on my desktop that is a link to C:\cygwin\bin\startxwin.exe.  It
has recently ceased to work because apparently startxwin.exe no longer
exists.  Somehow I missed where this was removed, so what is the
recommended way of starting X from a desktop icon now?

I seem to recall that startxwin.exe was introduced some time ago
because using a script to start X was inadequate somehow, but I don't
remember the details, so what changed?

remote xterm's can't open display after upgrade

I needed to upgrade gs to gs 9.15, so I ran setup yesterday. It wanted to update a whole bunch of stuff,
including X. OK, fine, I hadn't updated cygwin in quite a while, and I had other stuff to do. 

After the upgrade, I can't display remote xterms. OK, my old X shortcut didn't work, but I found "XWin
Server" and pinned it to my task bar. I launch that and I have the X server running, and a local xterm pops up. I
ssh into my linux server, and run my xterm, and get "can't open display". I did these steps. 

- turned off my Windows Firewall (I am on a safe, local network). 
- launched XWin Server. 

In the xterm that popped up: 
dcw <at> dcwdt02 ~ 
$ xhost + 
access control disabled, clients can connect from any host 

dcw <at> dcwdt02 ~ 
$ ssh centos6 
Last login: Wed Dec 10 16:31:16 2014 from dcwdt02 
centos6% setenv DISPLAY 10.11.22.33:0.0    # I use tcsh 
centos6% xterm 
xterm Xt error: Can't open display: 10.11.22.33:0.0 
centos6% 

Is there something obvious? 

Note: when run xterm with the firewall off, the error is immediate. when I do it when the firewall is on, there
is a delay before I get the error. 

This was all working on Monday with my older version of cygwin-x, which I think was a 2011 vintage. (I don't
upgrade stuff very often for this very reason.)

event delivery changes after XWin minimize/restore or resize

Recently (last week) my window manager key bindings stopped working 
after I minimize XWin window and restore it or resize it.  My 
combination of Alt key and mouse clicks do not work anymore.
I use kind of exotic window manager (ctwm) so to make it easy to 
replicate I used xev to repeat the same Alt + mouse click sequence and 
captured the xev list of events before and after XWin minimize and 
restore.  It looks like the list of events listed changes drastically 
explaining why ctwm stopped behaving properly.  I see the same behavior 
in Win8-64 and Win7-32.  I see that Alt key stopped working as a 
modifier. I tried twm instead of ctwm with the same result.

Here is the output of xev before XWin minimize/restore or resize while 
pressing Alt and clicking left mouse button in xev window:

LeaveNotify event, serial 32, synthetic NO, window 0xc00001,
     root 0x16d, subw 0xc00002, time 118362968, (41,42), root:(1747,393),
     mode NotifyGrab, detail NotifyVirtual, same_screen YES,
     focus NO, state 264

EnterNotify event, serial 32, synthetic NO, window 0xc00001,
     root 0x16d, subw 0xc00002, time 118363968, (41,42), root:(1747,393),
     mode NotifyUngrab, detail NotifyVirtual, same_screen YES,
     focus NO, state 8

KeymapNotify event, serial 32, synthetic NO, window 0x0,
     keys:  109 0   0   0   0   0   0   0   1   0   0   0   0 0   0   0

Here is the output of the same actions after XWin minimize/restore:

xf86-video-nested HOWTO or FAQ?

Hi,

I've seen the announcements that xf86-video-nested is included in 
CygwinX, and is intended to replace Xnest/Xephyr.  But nowhere have I 
(well, google) been able to find instructions on how to actually 
accomplish this within the Cygwin environment.

Has anyone actually successfully done this?  Or is it a work-in-progress 
that isn't yet ready for end-users?

TIA,

-BobC
