emacs-X11 unstable under cygwin 3.0.0-1

I have found that emacs-X11 (26.1-1) is unstable under cygwin 3.0.0-1.  It
works fine if I revert to cygwin 2.11.2-1.  The symptom is random crashing,
generally within the first minute of use.  If I get some time I will try
strace on it.  I have not located a stack dump either - not sure if it's
producing one.  (I normally start emacs from a .XWinrc menu under X; I am not
certain in which directory the X server is running, which presumably would
have to do with where a stack dump file would appear.)

But I thought it worth the report anyway.

The crashes will happen even when just navigating in the emacs buffer, i.e.,
it does not seem obviously related to some action on (e.g.) files.
