I'm running XP SP3. To reproduce the problem:

1. Start the X server by using the start menu shortcut (which invokes
run.exe on startxwin.bat).
2. Start emacs by the shortcut above.
3. List the home directory via C-x d [RET].
4. Repeatedly press the space bar to scroll through the list.  There is
often a delay before the cursor moves.

Reverting to run-1.1.10-1 solves the problem.

Thanks for the report. Do you know if emacs.exe itself contains its own version of hide-the-console?

Apparently not, in view of my answer below to your next question.

What happens if you (temporarily) do the

change your system environment variable settings (using the My Computer
properties window, etc) to set

PATH=C:\cygwin-1.7\bin;<and whatever else you had>

and then create a shortcut directly to emacs.exe? (I know, emacs.exe
might rely too heavily on the .dotfiles settings that get pulled in by
launching it via bash -c -l /usr/bin/emacs.  Just humor me, for now.)

A console window opens, and emacs then opens in its own window (as expected under X). Emacs works fine, and the console window stays open until I exit from emacs.

BTW, you *are* using cygwin-1.7 + run-1.1.11-10 (not -1.1.11-1) when you
see the problem, right?

Yes; cygcheck output is attached.

By the way, a similar problem was reported with the old run.exe in, and the solution there was to set CYGWIN=tty. But that was a different situation, because the OP was starting in the cygwin console. I've tried setting CYGWIN=tty (using My Computer), and this doesn't make any difference.
