git gui menu fonts are too small, unreadable

Menu fonts in 'git gui' are too small to be readable
(only one or two pixels high).   "gitk" works fine.

Same result whether I start 'git gui' from the command line
or from gitk.

I'm running cygwin 32 on windows 7.   uname -a shows:
CYGWIN_NT-6.1-WOW myname-LT 2.5.1(0.297/5/3) 2016-04-21 22:12 i686 Cygwin

Starting the X server from tcsh as:
 setenv DISPLAY :0; run xwin -multiwindow
(starting the server in foreground so I can see any console messages)

After the flurry of messages from X server initialization,
there is no output to the console or to /var/log/xwin/Xorg.0.log
when starting git gui except one line to the console:

 OS has icon alpha channel support: yes

So far I have tried:
 Searching mailing list archives
 google.  Lots of google...
 installing any missing xorg-X11-fonts-* packages
 re-installing git, git gui, gitk

cygcheck.out is attached with usernames redacted.

Any ideas are welcome.
Thanks and Best Regards,
