Re: C-M combination in cygwin + rxvt + bash + emacs
Thanks for your reply Joe, if I run emacs (with the -nw switch) in an xterm
it work as expected, running emacs as an X11 program is incredibly slow on
my machine using Xfree86 or Vista Exceed as x servers. In fact it's so slow
that after 5 minuets I gave up waiting for the screen to display.
Xfree86 is slower than Exceed, both seem to double in speed when I disable
Norton Antivirus (2003) but are still quite slow. Starting an Xterm with
Exceed takes about 5 seconds with Norton disabled and 10 with it enabled.
Has anyone else experienced the cygwin/emacs being impossibly slow with X11
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated,
