I've uploaded a new tcsh version 6.15.00-4 to cygwin.com.

What's new in 6.15.00-4?

- This version is supposed to solve problems with DOS lineendings when
  using tcsh as login shell.  A typical problem are broken or hanging
  rsync calls with tcsh as (remote) login shell.

  The problem is that Cygwin's tcsh up to 6.15.00-2 is using textmode on
  input so far.  This version drops all changes to the underlying mode.
  Instead, CR's on input are ignored when reading commands.

- tcsh identifies the system finally correctly as a Cygwin system.


    $ echo $version | cut -d " " -f 5
    $ echo $OSTYPE $HOSTTYPE
    posix i386


    $ echo $version | cut -d " " -f 5
    $ echo $OSTYPE $HOSTTYPE
    cygwin i386-cygwin

- /etc/profile.d/complete.tcsh is now not a Cygwin specific file,
  but the standard file from the upstream sources.  It has a working
  completion for Cygwin's mount/umount commands now.

- The default files under /etc are now installed into /etc/defaults and
  only copied to /etc by the postinstall script if they don't already

- A preremove script which removes dangling symlinks.

- The Cygwin specific tcsh installation files are now part of the
  upstream sources.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.
