In this release, for the first time, I've been able to build Cygwin's
emacs-X11 with all of the upstream defaults.  In particular, the build uses
GTK+-3 instead of GTK+-2, and it supports GNOME's GSettings and GConf
features.  A minor consequence of this is that you might see a GTK warning
about gtk_window_parse_geometry; this can be ignored.  A more important
consequence is that you should have a D-Bus session daemon running before
starting emacs under X11.  The simplest way to achieve this is to put the
following line at the beginning of your ~/.startxwinrc file:

eval `dbus-launch --sh-syntax`

See /usr/share/doc/emacs/README.Cygwin for more information.

Hi Jim,

Yes, that's why you should have a D-Bus session daemon running before starting emacs.
