The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

*** xorg-server-1.11.2-1
*** xorg-server-dmx-1.11.2-1

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 1.11.1-1:

* Use spawn() rather than pipe() & fork() to invoke xkbcomp.  This should 
improve X server startup reliability, avoiding being unable to start when 
cygwin's fork() emulation is unable to work successfully. (This workaround was 
added in 1.10.2-1, but in a form which didn't work :( )
