I have the same symptoms. I mentioned them on
1.5.4-1: Problem with XEmacs, fonts, and subprocesses
thread. This and that thread is about the same issue.
I personally build XEmacs myself. I tried XEmacs
21.4.14, 21.5.14, 21.5.5. I compiled all under Cygwin
1.5.5 to no awail.
I used Cywin 1.3.20 with XEmacs 21.5.5 for a good half
a year every day.
Here is my CYGWIN env
CYGWIN = `notty notitle glob'
