nedit gives X-error of failed request - also issues with (x)emacs

Dear all,

I have just updated my cygwin settings, something I do on a weekly
basis. This typically goes without any trouble. Now I have noticed
that there was a substantial update on X11. After the update, the
nedit editor fails to operate, returning the following error message:

X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
Major opcode of failed request: 70 (X_PolyFillRectangle)
Serial number of failed request: 289
Current serial number in output stream: 299

(The last two numbers change after rebooting).

I am not doing anything different as before. The Xemacs editor opens
fine, however, I had to install additional fonts as it became nearly
impossible to read the scripts. I just found out that I however cannot
type into the editor, same for emacs.
I am quite keen on nedit for some reason or another, so I would prefer
using nedit instead. I have not encountered anything like this prior
to the latest update, but it is quite frustrating.

After the first failure, I have reinstalled the entire X11 package
successfully. I have also reinstalled nedit, but this did not sort out
this problem. Obviously, something went wrong but I have no clue what

Running cygcheck -c returns no errors or incomplete installations.

Any advice or suggestions ?

With best regards / Vennlig hilsen
