wmctrl not working with cygwin-x and no root window




Latest cygwin on Windows 10.

% wmctrl -l
Cannot get client list properties.
(_NET_CLIENT_LIST or _WIN_CLIENT_LIST)

I'm running cygwin x with no root window to better integrate with my
windows desktop.

I'm guessing that this error is due to the fact that there is no root
window so the C code doesn't have an object that has a
_NET_CLIENT_LIST or _WIN_CLIENT_LIST).

However, xwininfo can find the windows without any problems. Is there
an alternative to wmctrl, or a workaround?

Thanks
Gulliver
