So, I was getting annoyed. First off, gnome is being broken. But you know? The more I think about it, I don't want all that overhead of _two_ desktop environments. Enter WeirdX, a java based XServer... with a window manager that talks to windows. I can run WeirdX as a rootless window, and when I run cygwin apps... they run in normal windows. Windowblinds can even skin them! Suddenly, my *nixdom becomes more transparent! GLEE!
