That's odd.  I can't really understand how that can happen.  I'd suspect that 
startxwin is failing to fork/exec Xwin successfully, possibly due to an 
application causing cygwin difficulties [1] (Unfortunately, 64-bit Windows 
itself seems to sometimes cause similar problems)

Are you able to start the server directly by running 'XWin'?
