The XFree86-xserv-4.2.0-40 package has been updated in the Cygwin


1) winmultiwindowwindow.c/winTopLevelWindowProc() - Rework the mouse
polling timer so that it is attached to the root-level window.  This
prevents multiple mouse polling timers from being created, which was
happening in the old versions.  Introduce a new way of determining
that the timer should be created or deleted, which will hopefully fix
some corner cases where the timer was not being created.  (Harold L
Hunt II)

2) XWin.rc - Remove a couple of window style flags that were not
compatible with Earle's patch for removing the minimize and maximize
buttons from the dialog boxes.  (Earle F. Philhower III)

3) XWin.rc - Make ``x'' and ``C'' hotkeys for the Exit Confirmation
dialog box.  (Colin Harrison, Biju G C)
