Thanks for reporting this.

There have been a few other similar reports, so I'd like to understand 
what the problem is here.

For future issues, can I ask you to use the cygwin list, per [1]

with no success.

Are you using a non-default visual theme?

Can you attach an XWin.0.log file? I'm interested if you have a single
