A bit more info here. I get the same behavior via ssh and sshd. I'm doing
$ ssh localhost
to start the session, as I was doing
$ telnet localhost
$ rsh localhost
I tried getting inetd working and turning off xinetd to see if that would
work, but no luck there. I think I followed the instructions in
/usr/doc/Cygwin/inetutils-1.3.2.README correctly, but net start inetd fails.
When I reboot the system, I get two errors in the system event log from the
service control manager. They say that inetd took more than 3 seconds to
Part of the instructions is to set the CYGWIN environment variable to
"binmode tty ntsec" but when I do that, my program stops working even in a
plain old bash with no telnet, no ssh, etc.
Not sure if it's of interest, but my home directory when I start bash is
c:/home/dbyron -- the same as the HOME user environment variable. My home
directory after telnet or ssh is /cygdrive/c/Documents and Settings/dbyron
-- same as if I had opened up a cmd window.
If anyone has pointers to get this working, I'd love to hear about them.
