I tried following directions from
https://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2015-07/msg00448.html for debugging with
strace and it seems there is an exception occurring inside a Trend
Micro DLL, causing XWin.exe to exit silently. At this point I don't
consider it a problem with Cygwin/X anymore, except that possibly it
should exit with a non-zero exit status. I am using a different X
server at the moment as a workaround.
