two small problems with kde-cygwin

i recently installed kde 3.1.1 on my w2k pc. overall,
it works well aside from somewhat sluggish response --
i guess it's time to upgrade to a faster processor.

two small software-related problems:

1.  when i request for help from the toolbar icon, each item
     in the contents panel of the help window is
     repeated; i.e., the first few items read: 
              Welcome to KDE
              Welcome to KDE
              KDE user's manual
              KDE user's manual
              Application Manuals
              Application Manuals

2.  when i invoke the "maximal Desktop,"
     an xterm window doesn't work properly
     when invoked using "xterm &" from
     a Konsole window; specifically, no text
     gets displayed in the xterm, either when typed
     from the keyboard or output from the OS. all
     i see in the xterm is the cursor (without prompt),
     which responds appropriately to line feeds.  

    strangely, this probem does NOT occur when
    i employ the "minimal Desktop;"  in other words,
    an xterm invoked from a Konsole window works
    fine in minimal mode. is buying more memory the "cure?"

is there some workaround for these problems?
