So I have several Win7 or Win10 PCs with a small set of users who use them,
I had modified the "XWin Server" shortcut by making it a per-user start
menu item that would start each user's server at a different display number.
Since some recent update, those shortcuts no longer work. Here's the error

  A fatal error has occurred and Cygwin/X will now exit.
  Unrecognized option: /home/**user**/.serverauth.17056

  Please open the logfile for more information.

  Vendor: The Cygwin/X Project
  Package: varsion 1.18.4-1 built 2016-07-22

  XWin was started with the following command-line:

  /usr/bin/XWin :3 -multiwindow -listen -auth /home/**user**/.serverauth.17056

Also, when I do start X, Win32 PuTTY doesn't seem to be able to forward
remote programs to it any more.  PuTTY does have an option to point to
a ".Xauthority" file, but that doesn't seem to help.

I sw some threads a few months ago that sounded similar, but reading through
them so far I don't see a concise solution.
