Your advice did solve the problem, thanks! I wonder which specific entry in the changelog did it...

Great! I thought you might at least see some different behavior. There has been a fair bit of work done in this area for the upcoming release, which will be "soon".

The unwillignness to show any text until it finds a newline seems it could be a
cygwin issue.  Taking the following code:

#ifndef __CYGWIN__
#define SLEEP _sleep(2000)
#define SLEEP sleep(2)
int main() {
  int i;
  while(1) {
   for(i = 0; i<  5; i++) {
    printf("%c", 'a'+i);

When built in visual C++, it will show 'a', 'b', 'c' etc every 2 seconds.  When
built in cygwin with gcc, it will show 'abcde' every 10 seconds.  The latter
happens whether I run it from a bash console or windows console.

I'll start a new thread for this if noone off-handedly has the answer...

So you're saying the snapshot exhibits the above behavior?
