I think this report probably belongs on the cygwin-xfree list. But I
doubt if anyone there will be able to help you unless you can provide
more information (which may be difficult with an intermittent problem).
It would be best if you could find a sequence of steps that reliably
produces the problem. And the first step (after starting the X server)
should be to run emacs with the -Q option in order to eliminate the
influence of your emacs init files and your X resources.
