Help Running DDD Under Cygwin (Linux Related)

I just installed Cygwin version 1.5.6-1. I downloaded and installed every package that is available and it took up about 1.5 GB on my hard drive. After launching cygwin.bat, I type 'startx' which brings up the X windowing system. I then type 'ddd' which brings up the DDD. It comes up but I get the following error message:

gdb: access /dev/tty3: No such file or directory
gdb: cannot open master pty: No such file or directory
gdb: communication setup failed

DDD then freezes up and I have to close it.
GDB runs fine from the command line.
Does anyone have any idea what might be happening?

My OS is Windows XP Pro.
DDD version 3.3.8 (i686-pc-cygwin)

I use cygwin (on Win2k) but I'm not familar with ddd.
I'm using cygwin 1.3.22-1. I do know that in a previous version there was a problem with the installer that you had to install only the cygwin package first and then install the remaining packages.

Do you do a fresh install or was this an update over a previous version?

You can type "cygcheck -s"
At the end it will show all the installed packages, make sure the packages exist.
Do you have a .bash_profile ? What are you running there?
