I added -display 127.0.0.1:0.0 to the command line:
C:\cygwin\bin\run.exe C:\cygwin\bin\xterm.exe -display 127.0.0.1:0.0 -e
/bin/xhere /bin/bash.exe "%L"
and it works fine for me now.

find that much more convenient.

what "chere -r" says ?
for me is:

chere version 0.7
run.exe is available at C:\cygwin\bin\run.exe
