Automatically starting Cygwin/X Window Server without xterm.

From True Blade:

To start the cygwin X server, create a new shortcut in your Startup group. It should execute this command:

<path-to-cygwin>\bin\run.exe -p /usr/X11R6/bin XWin -multiwindow -clipboard -silent-dup-error

For my setup, where I have cygwin installed in c:\opt\cygwin, the entire command is:

C:\opt\cygwin\bin\run.exe -p /usr/X11R6/bin XWin -multiwindow -clipboard -silent-dup-error

Now, whenever I log in to Windows, the X server automatically starts, and I don’t have any annoying text windows that I might accidentally close.
