Chris and I are wondering how many people are using the Windows console
as local console window in CYGWIN=tty mode and why.
I have, perhaps unnecessarily, tty defined (as well as ntsec).
My typical use of cygwin involves opening a cygwin window using a
desktop shortcut (link til bat file):
bash --login -i
I generelly use command line editing a lot (is tty necessary for that?).
My other use is to open a Command window using windows explorer to have
it change directory to the shown directory (shift-right click->Open
Command Windows Here). From that windows I type "C:\cygwin\bin\bash -l"
to get a cygwin prompt. There I type "cd -" to get back to the chosen
directory to perform whatever task I need (mostly grep, find, running
make, again some command line editing, rarely using an editor).
If tty doesn't make a difference for my use, I have little objection to
