That may be somewhat of an oversimplification. Due to the way we do
backups at work, my Cygwin "root" is installed in a path that contains
spaces. Most things work OK, but Xwin is unable to automatically run
"xrdb" when it starts up. This means that my default X program
configurations (xterm , Emacs) are not read. I have to manually run
xrdb each time I start a new Xwin session. It's not the end of the
world, but it does require a little extra work each time.
