XTerm(330) fails to open window in latest cygwin-x64 under Windows 10

The only output is:
karpeterson@DFWLW1041HJTC2 /var/log/xwin
$ xterm
xterm: cannot load font

XWin.0.log contains:
[  1471.843] IsOverrideRedirect: Failed to get window attributes

This message only gets printed when I use my favorite xterm options: "-fg
white -bg black -sl 5000" No other output is printed, and xterm exits with
RC=0. Other locally run X programs work fine, such as xeyes and emacs.

What can I do to debug this?
