Starting a xterm window




Just getting a problem: this used to work but has stopped!
>From within bash I can type

$ run XWin -clipboard -nolock -multiwindow 2>/dev/null &
$ /bin/xterm -display :0.0

and I am in a xterm window. Good; as intended.

If I want to enter xterm straight from a Windows command prompt I try

G:\> bin\run bin\XWin -clipboard -nolock -multiwindow 2>nul &
G:\> bin\xterm -display :0.0

but line 2 gives

/usr/bin/xterm: Xt error: Can't open display: :0.0
/usr/bin/xterm: DISPLAY is not set

Any ideas? (This used to work, it really did ...)
