How to debug XWin starting only sometimes?




When starting "XWin Server" though the windows shortcut, it sometimes won't start; other times it will.

The shortcut command line is

C:\cygwin64\bin\run.exe --quote /usr/bin/bash.exe -l -c "cd; exec /usr/bin/startxwin"

which is executed in directory cygwin64.

The current contents of .xsession-errors is

[
** Message: couldn't connect to dbus session bus: Verbindung ist geschlossen
** Message: couldn't connect to dbus session bus: Verbindung ist geschlossen
** Message: couldn't connect to dbus session bus: Verbindung ist geschlossen
Socket /tmp/fam-admin/fam- has wrong permissions
]

As you can imagine, the directory /tmp/fam-admin contains no files at all.

Starting startxwin from mintty actually succeeds (always or at least more often than starting through the shortcut).

The only suspicious lines found in /var/log/xwin/XWin.0.log are

In /var/log/xwin/XWin.0.log.old we see

[   775,375] winMultiWindowXMsgProc - Fatal error 1 on xcb connection

In /var/log/xwin/XWin.1.log we see

[  1523,000] winMultiWindowXMsgProc - Fatal error 1 on xcb connection

In /var/log/xwin/XWin.1.log.old we see

[ 1583,187] winMultiWindowXMsgProcErrorHandler - ERROR: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)

Any hints who may be the culprit and/or how to debug the issue?

Thanks in advance,
Leon
