If you have WinNT:

Make sure you have the Sergey's latest coolview update and the
bash.exe.gz.  Make sure that you `set CYGWIN32=tty %CYGWIN32%' before
starting bash.  This will fix the problem.

I don't know about Win95.  I can only try that from home and it will
be a while before I can get to it.
