I can't get Emacs to work on Cygwin on Vista. Xemacs works
just fine, but Emacs doesn't. When I try to launch Emacs in
GUI mode from an xterm, the shell just hangs. When I try to
launch it in console mode from a non-X bash shell, the shell
just hangs. Again, Xemacs works; it's only Emacs that doesn't
work. Running emacs-nox doesn't help. I've also tried using
the -d and -nw options, but no joy.

I'm running Cygwin on Windows Vista Home Premium SP1, as

   $ uname -a
   CYGWIN_NT-6.0 balance 1.5.25(0.156/4/2) 2008-04-17 12:11 i686 Cygwin

The version of Emacs I'm using is one that came with the
Cygwin distribution, and is version 21.2.1.

Not just me then, same problem here fails on Vista and Windows Server 2008. I have 21.2.1 running fine within a Windows XP virtual machine though, so something specifically about the Vista kernel version.

I've yet to try later builds to see if this cures the problem - i.e. 23.3.
