Right, but did you try to type any command? When I do ssh localhost zsh -l
I don't get prompt as well, but commands work fine.
I get the same behaviour with and without -l, with zsh and bash, on
Cygwin, Linux and Solaris. I guess it's not Cygwin related problem at all.
Yes, I tried typing commands but nothing happens. The .z* files are not
executed either (I tried adding commands to them that create files and
the files don't show up). It also DOES work if I login as a user with
admin priviledges. As I said, this was all working fine before I
upgraded cygwin yesterday, so it must be some minor change that came in
with the upgrade. Therefore I strongly suspect it is a cygwin problem.
