    yes., then I tried adding back every element from the original:
 xterm -fn 

And the original statement works!

    Actually ended up reinstall a bunch of packages.  One of my problems
is cygwin's setup program doesn't make it clear how to install parts
of an install when it defaults to wanting to install a few hundred
packages.  Once I did that, several local perl progs were hosed
due to cpan dependencies including 1 that won't build (yet).

something in that huge package list (including several X11 packages)
seems to have fixed this problem .. though I wish I knew how!

Thanks for your help!
