I get these errors when my local x server isn't running or is broke. I use 
Humming bird quite a bit from a company win2k laptop. I'm also 
experimenting with cygwin X.

Perhaps it's a silly question, but is you local X in good working order? 
Also I notice that the error above shows it trying to connect to 
lcoalhost:14.0, are you srue you set DISPLAY= correctly?
