Forgive me if this is a repost. I tried to send this to the Cygwin list
the other day, but I never saw it appear.
I have two systems running Cygwin: an NT4 (home) machine and a XP
(work) machine. I've tried to make them as similar as possible, but
there are apparently some differences that elude me. Specifically:
1) At home (NT4), .bashrc is automatically run when I fire up a bash
shell. At work, it doesn't, though I can manually run it with
2) At home (NT4), the simple perl script I use to filter mutt messages
before displaying them works beautifully. At work (XP), the
messages all display with ^M at the end of every line. (This is
recent ... since I just re-installed Cygwin on this machine. It
*used* to work.)
3) At home, mutt has no trouble telling me which MH mailboxes contain
new mail. At work, however, this function of mutt doesn't work.
Once I open the mailbox, the new messages are correctly marked with
'N', but when I attempt to change mailboxes, mutt doesn't prompt me
as it should.
I've compared the output from 'cygcheck -s -v' on the two machines,
but I didn't see anything obvious. (The work machine has more
packages installed.) Can anyone suggest what might be responsible for
Currently, the NT4 (home) machine is working *better* than the XP
(work) one. Since I'll be upgrading the home machine to a new box
running XP shortly, I'd like to find out what's going on.
Thanks very much!
