Since upgrading to cygwin 1.0 (on Win2K) less no longer displays properly.
I have TERM=cygwin, I have the recently posted /etc/termcap installed and my
"DOS box" has no scrollbars.
When I `less c:/etc/termcap', the top 3 lines of the file are not shown, even
after typing `g' (start of file). However, if I type 'G' (end of file)
followed by 'g' then it is shown, although searching for strings doesn't
display the highlighted matches (they seem to be off the top of the screen).
It's pretty much unusable really.
However, this works fine with an earlier version of `less' (cygwin B20.1
compatible?) that I found by following some links on the cygwin site. BUT with
that version, if I type /foobar<BACKSPACE> the BACKSPACE key doesn't work - I
get ^H inserted instead, which is a little annoying, but still usable.
