I had a couple of icons on my desktop that have a property of
where script is a quick script that invokes a ssh session to a
remote machine. (e.g ssh -l <myid> -X <hostname>)
I also have the following line in my cygwin.bat:
bash --login -i %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9
Now, under bash 2.04.7a, when I double click
my ssh'able icons, my remote session starts right up.
However, under 2.05, this no longer works. All
I get is my local bash shell, but no connection
to the remote box.
I went back and extracted 2.04 (called it
bash204.exe), duplicated my cygwin.bat
(cygbatch.bat), and changed the line to be:
bash204 --login -i ....), just to make sure I
The 2.04 version works, the 2.05 doesn't.
I looked in the NEWS file, and didn't see anything
about breaking the -i functionallity, so does any
one know what changed. I would look into
the problem, but due to licensing/rights issues
with my company, I'm not sure it would do any good,
as I already have one patch that is in limbo.
