I upgraded my Cygwin installation to Cygwin dll 1.7.11-1. Since then when I start Cygwin bash under emacs i get the following error message:
bash: cannot set terminal process group (-1): Inappropriate ioctl for device
bash: no job control in this shell
And indeed, I can't stop subprocesses in this shell, which is very inconvenient.
BTW, I invoke bash in emacs with the arguments "--noediting -i". Both are needed.
This is the default when you run M-x shell.
What can I do about the error message?
I can't reproduce this. Please give a precise recipe for producing the
problem, starting from `emacs -Q'. Also, please follow the
problem-reporting guidelines at
including the part about attaching cygcheck output.
