I addressed a couple more small issues on SVN, including adding the

mintty with "-" as the command.
I also discovered a problem in command line processing: after selecting
a config file with --config, mintty will try to invoke "--config" as the
command. Basically, an 'argv += 2' is missing, but I ought to change the

As announced on the main list, I've released version 0.3.5 of MinTTY.
The package files are available from
The shortcut generated by the postinstall script now starts mintty with
'-' as the command, thus invoking the user's default shell as a login shell.
