Possibly this is a bug with the mapping of the X windows decoration hints into
a native Windows window style.

Can you install 'xprop', and show the output you get from running that, then
clicking on the window which doesn't get decorated and sized correctly?

(The cygwin DLL version number (1.7.17) is independent of the X server version
number, so doesn't really help here.  The X server version number which it
works correctly with would be more informative)

Are you are comparing with the last free version of Xming (, or a
more recent version?
