FW: XWin Xserver maximum root area exceeded?


Hi,
Harold suggested that I post my questions on the mailing list details see
below.

Brigitte 

Brigitte,

Glad you like Cygwin/X, but I am afraid I don't know the answers to all 
of your questions.  You will have better luck at cygwin-xfree@cygwin.com.

You are welcome.

We didn't have version information in the executable until just now.  I 
was going to add a --version or -version parameter, but I forgot.  Oh 
well, when you do a XWin -help now it has the version number in a popup 
box, so that should suffice for the time being.

Harold
