Oh, yes, you're using Win95! Sorry, I forgot. :-/

All cygwin32 apllications are Win32 console applications and, as
written somewhere in vim's README, support for Win32 console
applications isn't that great in Windows 95. So you will unfortunately
have to live with that until Microsoft improves it or change to WinNT.
There's no other way AFAIK.

BTW: As I don't run Win98 (yet), I don't know whether support for
console applications was improved there. Does anyone know?

Oh, that sounds strange! Cursor keys work quite great for me.

But there's one thing that could be related to your problem: When I'm
at the beginning of a line and press the cursor right key quickly and
several times, the cursor disappears and moves without being shown. It
appaers again about half a second after the last key press but at the
right place in the line.

Perhaps that's quite the same for you but a bit slower because of your

BTW: This doesn't happen if I move the cursor to the left. (?)

Do you have an /etc/termcap?
