Just updated to 1.7.12 and found one regression. If you have upx packed
executables (upx from cygwin distribution) the stdout of the packed
executable is broken now.
Try the following from mintty:
upx --best /usr/bin/tar.exe -o /tmp/tar.exe
You will notice that when you invoke the compressed /tmp/tar.exe that no
output will be sent to the mintty console, while it works if you just
It works just fine with 1.7.11. When you decompress the executable using
upx -d it will start to work again.
This is not specific to tar, but to any exe I have seen right now.
