Cygwin crashed by emacs???

My entire cygwin session CRASHES CONSISTENTLY
("XWin.exe has generated errors... log is being created")
when I try using "ediff-buffers" in emacs.
I am running cygwin 1.3-4 under Windows 2000 (v.5.00.2195, s.p.4)
I could reproduce the error by running the emacs supplied with
cygwin as well with another GNU emacs running remotely.
If I try to use "M-X ediff-buffers",the ediff cession starts OK
but soon after I modify one of the buffers being compared
(usually while I am modifying it but sometimes 20 seconds later,
could not identify exactly which action causes this) cygwin crashes:
"XWin.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows.
You will need to restart the program.
An error log is being created."
