- Fix setsid problem where processes did not correctly detach from a
console. (Christopher Faylor)
I commonly run a compilation from within GNU Emacs. I've never had any
problems with this until I tried running 1.3.21-1. I think it has to do
with the changes to the console handling.
Here's a silly little program:
int main(int numArgs, char** args)
spawnl(_P_WAIT, "C:/cygwin/bin/ls", "C:/cygwin/bin/ls", NULL);
If I compile it without -mno-cygwin, then everything is fine (tried rxvt
If it is compiled with -mno-cygwin, it still works fine in rxvt, but
when run from within bash, within Emacs, it allocates a console, writes
its stdout to that console, then closes it's console.
For a large compile, this means that 1000's of consoles are popping up
and dissapearing, not only slowing things down, but also loosing the
stdout from that non-cygwin app.
