Karl, you might want to try reverting to the previous version of libharfbuzz0 and libfreetype6. I'm running into problems with those libraries on the 32-bit version of cygwin, causing occasional crashes of xterm, and frequent crashes of xwin-xdg-menu under Windows 10. I'm just wondering if your issue is related to those same problems in these libraries, only it's manifesting differently under the 64-bit version of cygwin. It may be a long-shot, but if our experiences corroborate each other it might help nail down these font-related issues.
In any case, check to see if there's an xterm.exe.stackdump file in the directory from which you ran xterm. If there is, try running something like "strace xterm.exe > xterm.log" and see what xterm is doing before it crashes.
Hope this helps. Gilles On Wed, 18 Apr 2018 09:48:08, Karl Peterson wrote:

Other locally run X programs work fine, such as xeyes and emacs. What can I do to debug this?
