 Mike's description of his problem suggests
 that he was using fbpanel. 
 He refers to an
 icon at the top middle of the screen, not the 
 xwin-xdg-icon in the notification area.  Your
 description is different, 
 and at least one
 of your error messages (gedit 8876 
 child_info_fork::abort:...) sounds like a
 rebase issue.

Please let me know if this should be a different thread then,
but it seemed similar and timing was coincidental.

When I did 
> run "rebase-trigger full" then run setup-x86

(or x86_64) the first time, I had not shut down all cygwin processes between
trigger full and setup.
This time I ran "rebase-trigger full", did full shutdown/restart, then ran setup.

This time xterm will not start from the xwin-xdg-menu, but will start from
command line (after export DISPLAY=:0.0).

I saw these from $ startxwin &

(WW) /tmp mounted on a filesystem without hardlinks, activating -nolock
_XSERVTransmkdir: Mode of /tmp/.X11-unix should be set to 1777
_XSERVTransmkdir: this may cause subsequent errors


and some rebase-related touch error messages in setup.log.full:

About half the "accessory" app's won't start from the xdg menu, and throw fork errors when started
from the xterm command line. For example:
