 The log indicates it only
 downloaded the mirror list and setup.ini and updated
 nothing. That's why you should run
 "rebase-trigger full" then run setup-x86.

 Take care.

Didn't seem to help for me.

(Resend:)

I have a relatively new install, since pi day 2017, and no .startxwinrc.

I had something similar Thursday 7/20/17 afternoon, after running updates
for Windows security, and Cygwin.

$ startxwin & would get the icon with menu, but selecting xterm would not
display an xterm. This is often all I use with Cygwin menu.

A couple restarts and runs of setup without any updates didn't help.

After a complete shutdown over a 3-day weekend, and another cygwin setup/update today,
startxwin & xterm from menu click worked OK.
So I was relieved, but also, I suppose, glad to not be the only one, maybe.

Some other things do not work right.

Windows 7 Enterprise, SP1; 64 bit Cygwin.
$ uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-6.1 MYPCNAME 2.8.2(0.313/5/3) 2017-07-12 10:58 x86_64 Cygwin

Aside from the usual:

xterm: cannot load font "-Misc-Fixed-bold-R-*-*-13-120-75-75-C-120-ISO10646-1"
xterm: cannot load font "-Misc-Fixed-bold-R-*-*-13-120-75-75-C-120-ISO10646-1"
xterm: cannot load font "-Misc-Fixed-bold-R-*-*-13-120-75-75-C-120-ISO10646-1"

I am now seeing things in the mintty console like:

SetupSysMenu: GetSystemMenu() failed for HWND 0x6055c
OS has icon alpha channel support: yes
SetupSysMenu: GetSystemMenu() failed for HWND 0x11071a
SetupSysMenu: GetSystemMenu() failed for HWND 0x1b0740
SetupSysMenu: GetSystemMenu() failed for HWND 0xc0746
SetupSysMenu: GetSystemMenu() failed for HWND 0xc0560
SetupSysMenu: GetSystemMenu() failed for HWND 0x200746



Calculator, galculator, gvim, nedit work OK from the menu click

However,

files (nautilus), gedit, leafpad do not start from menu click

leafpad from command line starts OK, and exits without errors to console.

gedit eventually starts from command line, but is not happy,
giving errors:
