Re: Linefeed without carriage return after quitting vim

Using the latest cygwin DLL (1.7.15-1) I am routinely encountering a
strange issue when quitting vim. This only occurs if I have used ^Z
to suspend vim, restored it with fg, and later quit. IOW things work
normally if I never suspend vim.
A problematic session looks something like:
+ Stopped vim
The problem is evident in the last two lines which should be flush
with the left margin. For comparison, substituing 'less' for 'vim':
[~]$ less /Cygwin.bat
+ Stopped less -r /Cygwin.bat
less -r /Cygwin.bat
The terminal behaves normally so it doesn't seem like any settings get
corrupted (pressing enter gives me a properly-aligned prompt).
Currently, stty just outputs:
speed 38400 baud; line = 0;
but I have tried various settings of the newline / CR translations to no avail.
Interestingly, the "info" program exhibits the same behaviour. I
thought maybe it would affect other "fullscreen" programs like "less"
or "man", but I couldn't reproduce it with those two (as shown above).
Any ideas what could be causing this / how to further diagnose? It's
not a killer but it certainly looks weird. This used to happen with
older cygwin dll's but IIRC it was never so reliably reproducible.
I don't know the cause, but I often find that 'stty sane' fixes this
kind of problem.
