Mine was the reply to that message, and yes, I'm running WindowsXP,
emacs-23.4-2 and emacs-X11-23.4-2.

$uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-5.1 xxxxxxxxx 1.7.15(0.260/5/3) 2012-05-09 10:25 i686 Cygwin

The main problem I'm seeing is that if I hold down any key, the repeat
feature works, but I don't see the results until I release the key.
