However, if you enable this, then less no longer works.  (When you leave less
you are at the top of your "buffer" and must hit return many times to 
scroll through it.)  Or at least, this is what happens to me.

For help on using this list (especially unsubscribing), send a message to
"gnu-win32-request@cygnus.com" with one line of text: "help".
