Subject: Keyboard initialization failed. This could be a missing or incorrect setup of xkeyboard-config.

Hi! My Cygwin/X fails to start.

Full /var/log/xwin/XWin.0.log is here (expires in 7 days):

At first X used to work well. Then problems started when I didn't log in Windows immediately when login prompt appeared. Now I can't start X at all.

"cygcheck xkbcomp" finds no failures in library loading and "rebaseall" does not help.

Any idea?
