XWin no longer working for me with -nolisten tcp?

I just recently formatted and reinstalled Windows 10 x64. I have not updated anything related to Cygwin and everything version-wise is just as it was.

I was previously starting X with the following:

$ xinit -- -multiplemonitors -multiwindow -clipboard -noprimary -dpi 96 -nolisten tcp -displayfd 3 3>/c/home/.display

But now it fails to open the display:


I can get around this issue by using "-listen tcp" instead of "-nolisten tcp" but I don't understand why. This is especially ironic considering that this is the complete opposite workaround to what I had to use three years ago:
