Is this a known issue?
I have my cygwin shortcut properties modified in the layout to allow for
9999 screen buffer lines.
I fire up a console, and hit enter a whole bunch of times so that the
scroll bar moves a bit down.
Then I go into vi on a big text file and while in vi, tap above the
scroll thumb a few times to page up in the console. Then I do :q and
when I start hitting enter again, the contents of what was in vi is still
present in the screen buffer. This means that I have to hit enter a lot
of times to get past it.
Make sure your TERM environment variable is set appropriately.
$ export TERM=cygwin
should take care of it.
