We also speak 1809 and the snapshot is not working for us either.

I was thinking that the 3rd solution (TERM=cygwin) is easier. It can be applied in a .sh and .csh script inside /etc/profile.d or is there a different place recommended for Cygwin to set this variable? Is there any side effect using "cygwin" from the default value "xterm"?
