At a guess, do you need to make sure the DISPLAY environment variable is
set for the xterm to find the server? You have it set in your cygcheck
output, but you clearly produced that within an xterm which will have
the variable set.
If that's the case DISPLAY will need to be set in the users Windows
environment for chere to start xterms.
