[Start cygwin bash in a terminal]
bash: asdfghjkl: command not found
[result after redisplay of the line is:]
Similar result for right-arror (shows ...[C... )
Doesn't always happen. Load/Timing dependent ?
Doesn't seem to happen with mintty (not exhaustively tested).
Does happen when starting via cygwin.bat. (windows 'cmd' terminal ?)
This has been happening for a while (months ?)
(I've just done a cygwin update after not having done so for a while to
verify that the problem exists in an up-to-date cygwin).
If further info is needed, please let me know
