Been using it for ~12hrs straight now with no (new) problems. Thanks as
As to the non-(new) problems: Screwy copy and paste. I've been having this
thing where copy/paste works fine for a while, then for no observable reason
starts to act up. Multiple installations. Generally it starts with having
to try to do a paste multiple times before it does anything, and eventually
programs start throwing errors saying they're unable to talk to the
clipboard (*any* program, not just Cygwin ones). I figured it was my
...ecks... server, which until now had not been the Cygwin/ecks one, but
with the recently renewed activity I've switched to that one and I appear to
be having the same problems, so now I'm starting to suspect rxvt. A little
Googling didn't turn up any similar reports. Known issue? Suspected issue?
I don't know how clipboard responsibilities are divided between rxvt and/or
the server, so I'm not sure who to blame or where to look here.
