The following package has been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

*** XFree86-xserv-4.3.0-61


1) winclipboardwndproc.c, winclipboardxevents.c - Attempt to fix
clipboard deadlock that was causing hangs.  The nature of the fix was
to stop calling XPeekIfEvent since it will block until the specified
type of event is seen.  Instead, we call XSync to flush output events
and wait for them to be processed, then we do our own little loop with
a call to select() using a timeout of 3 seconds from when we started
(the timeout is adjusted after each call to select()).  This should
alleviate problems with XPeekIfEvent not returning.  Finally, since we
can detect whether the SelectionNotify event has arrived now, I added
code to paste NULL to the Win32 clipboard if the X11 application never
returns any useful clipboard data; this should prevent Win32
applications from freezing when there are problems pasting from X11 to
Win32.  (Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)

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.
