1.7.22: CTRL+C on mingw applications
Tue Jul 23 12:35:00 GMT 2013
Due to some odd hangs in some past versions of cywin1.dll (1.7.18 -
1.7.21) I was still using 1.7.17. Now I gave 1.7.22 a new try. The
blocks seem to be resolved but well it appears that cygwin can now no
longer break running standard windows/mingw tools.
I am using 1.7.22 (32bit) with mintty on windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. All
cygwin packages are up to date. My $CYGWIN is set to "nodosfilewarning".
Pressing CTRL+C is simply ignored for mingw apps while it works for
cygwin executables. When I run cywin from within a windows dos box my
exes stop to work but the console than hangs until execution of the
started executable has finished. stdout of the executable seem to be
redirected to /dev/null after pressing CTRL+C in console window.
I today tried all officially released cygwin1.dlls from 1.7.17 to 1.7.22
but all versions starting with 1.7.18 do show this problem.
Have I missed something in the time between 1.7.17 and now or is this a
"new" bug (I could only loosely follow the mailing list in the past months)?
Thanks for your help,
