Are you running it from the desktop from "run"?  I discovered the same
thing.  One workaround that worked for me was to open a rxvt window
and then run emacs from that. However, an even better workaround was
simply using the "w32" version and bypassing X entirely. When I
changed my "run" shortcut to run "emacs-w32" instead, it works fine.
