I'm. This is what I get with the latest developmental version,
which doesn't include your patch. I get the bash prompt with
the Cygwin binary.

I'm aware. It was the problem I reported some days ago, that
Thomas fixed in dev.12. The Cygwin binary works fine without
the change:

2002-12-18 (2.8.5dev.12)
* remove a check in LYMain.c for cygwin's console, which does
not work with screen (report by Frederic L W Meunier) -TD

Discussion started at:

Setting CYGWIN=notty didn't change anything. I even added it to

A problem I see in the Cygwin binary has been fixed some months

2002-05-28 (2.8.5dev.8)
* remove ifdef that disabled home/end keys with Cygwin
configuration -DK

The fix from Doug is at
