When I try to launch startkde in cygwin using the following script :

   /usr/sbin/cygserver &
   export CYGWIN=server
   export SHELL=/bin/bash
   xwin -fullscreen -noreset &
   xwinclip &
   xhost +
   taskkill /IM xwin
   taskkill /IM xwinclip
   taskkill /IM cygserver

A black screen appear containing a single popu windows with the text :
could not start kstartupconfig check your installation

I also obtain the following messages on the shell window:

$ ./startkde
./startkde: line 6: xwinclip: command not found
cygserver: Initialization complete.  Waiting for requests.
