The current Cygwin DLL will freeze an xterm/rxvt when a large amount of
data is pasted into it. The problem was alleviated slightly in the newer
snapshots of the DLL, by an increase of the buffer size to 64k.
There is a fix that apparently allows pastes of any size. A patch has
been submitted, but it needs testing. I've built a snapshot against
(reasonably) current CVS. The snapshot (and the patch) are available at
the following locations:
Please try this snapshot out and post your feedback to the list. Thanks,
P.S. Pardon the subject, the more logical "xterm paste fix" bounced.
