I have installed KDE3.4.1 on Cygwin and I am starting kde-cygwin 3.4.1 with
bash using the following script:

usr/sbin/cygserver &
export CYGWIN=server
export DISPLAY=
usr/X11R6/bin/XWin -multiwindow &
usr/X11R6/bin/xwinclip &
usr/X11R6/bin/xhost +
export SHELL=/bin/bash
opt/kde3.4/bin/kdeinit +kicker &

I manually walked through the script and the script works.  However, the 
kdeinit line is generating the following error.

Could not bind to socket '/tmp/ksocket-Ross 

I end up an X root window that is all grey with no window manager, no 
desktop, no applications.

The relevant bits of .bashrc are:

What does the above error mean?
Are there some KDE configuration files that needed to be changed?
