The XFree86-xserv-4.3.0-40 package has been updated in the Cygwin


Server source, direct link:
(134 KiB)

xc/programs/Xserver/hw/xwin (all files) diff against 4.3.0-39 source code:
(14 KiB)


1) winmultiwindowwindow.c/winReorderWindowsMultiWindow - Fix the
problem that XWin crashes when multiple XWin processes exist.
(Kensuke Matsuzaki)

2) InitOutput.c, winclipboardthread.c, winglobals.c,
winmultiwindowwm.c - Move calls to setlocale () from
winclipboardthread.c and winmultiwindowwm.c to InitOutput.c and only
call it on the first server generation.  Remove the g_fCalledSetLocale
global variable.  Make sure to call XInitThreads () before calling
XSupportsLocale ().  This may help fix the crash on startup reported
by Lester Ingber.  (Harold L Hunt II)

3) winclipboardwrappers.c/winProcSetSelectionOwner - Reinitialize the
local list of selection owners when the server generation changes.
This fixes the crash where copying text in X11 followed by copying an
image in Win32 followed by an X Server reset causes XWin.exe to
segfault; this was reported by Alexander Gottwald.  (Harold L Hunt

4) winmultiwindowwm.c - Move the global variable g_nQueueSize into
the WMMsgQueueRec structure so that it is stored per instance of the
multi-window window manager thread.  (Harold L Hunt II)

5) winmultiwindowwm.c/winInitWM - Zero memory allocated for
WMProcArgRec, WMInfoRec, and XMsgProcArgRec structures.  This should
help prevent problems with uninitialized variables in these structures.
(Harold L Hunt II)

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Once you've downloaded setup.exe, run it and select "XFree86"
and then click on the appropriate field until the above announced
version number appears if it is not displayed already.

If your mirror doesn't yet have the latest version of this package after
24 hours, you can either continue to wait for that site to be updated or
you can try to find another mirror.

utility or Cygwin/X in general.

If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin/X mailing
list is the appropriate place.
