Bug: emacs-X11 25.1.1 within "XWin -multiwindow" control-frame only shows "\"

Dear cygwin heroes,
I am experiencing an error with the combination of XWin.exe -multiwindow and

Receipt for reconstruction:

Start emacs with:

Compare two arbitrary buffers with

> M-x ediff-buffers

The minimized ediff-control-frame only shows:

I am expecting in the ediff-control-frame something like:

If I started emacs in a mintty (2.7.8) I get there the following warning:

> (emacs-X11:1832): Gtk-WARNING **: gtk_window_parse_geometry() called on a
> window with no visible children;
> the window should be set up before gtk_window_parse_geometry() is called.

The error does not occur with

> XWin -rootless &
> twm.exe &

cygcheck.out is attached.

Note: I had to remove all duplicated lines from cygcheck.out to avoid the
message size limit of the mail server.
