startxwin.bat was honorably retired in xinit 1.2.0-2 [1],[2],[3], so there is
no 'standard one' for you to copy anymore.

If you inspect the start menu shortcut which xinit creates, you will see that
it uses run to invoke bash -l -c to run startxwin.exe, which starts XWin with
-multiwindow and any specified options and the clients in ~/.startxwinrc

I know that sequence works for me to start XWin with no unneeded command
windows.  If it doesn't work for you, then that would be a bug in something.
