Re: Some programs (vi, ssh) crash when screen buffer height is big

Thanks Larry.

Indeed we are :)

I certainly hope so. At least, to peek and determine if it's something
big or not. Console size to me sounds like some kind of buffer
overflow, not some intrinsically non-POSIX thing that MS console does.

This might even turn into a security issue if so. Hey, I have to get
this to be a high priority ;)

Just "misunderstanding quack" then? :)

Unfortunately agree with you on this, too...

It was helpful. Thanks for taking the time to reply, I appreciate that!

I'll go have a few more Cygwin crashes now ;) And hope endlessly till
some brave soul finds this thread :'( I'm off to other things, cheers!
