I've checked that; it still doesn't work.
The problem appears to be this in start_monitor, in gui.tcl:
exec xterm -geometry 40x5 -e d.mon start=$monitor
The xterm terminates as soon as d.mon completes, which seems to end up
killing the monitor (this may be due to a difference in the way that
Cygwin handles terminals, or due to the use of the Win32 spawn()
function rather than Cygwin's fork+exec).
A possible fix is to change the above line not to use an xterm, i.e.
exec d.mon start=$monitor &
You will still need to select the monitor separately.
