The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

*** xorg-server-*1.17.1-5

I think this update breaks XWin for me.  When starting any client (gvim,
emacs-X11), I get a broken window, sometimes empty, sometimes partially
filled.  I cannot click the content, the click just goes through to the
window below, which brings the bottom window up.  If I focus the broken
window (through the taskbar), I seem to be able to interact with the
program, e.g. after inserting something in gvim using the keyboard, the
title reflects this through the modified flag ('+').  But again, the
content stays empty.

If I run XWin without multiwindow, the program (gvim or emacs) renders
just fine in the XWin window.

If I revert back to 1.17.1-4, multiwindow works just fine as well.

Thanks for reporting this.

This is rather puzzling, as the change in 1.17.1-5 was not directly related to how windows are rendered.

Can you provide some more details? e.g. an XWin.0.log so I can see if that shows anything unusual? Are these local X clients?

You might also like to try the latest snapshot [1] to see if that behaves any differently.
