Thanks for the work-around, Chris. I didn't understand from the
Cygwin User Guide that CYGWIN=tty wasn't required for rxvt.
However, I do think there is a problem here. I am also having
problems getting copy/paste with Windows to work with my
locally-compiled copy of XEmacs, unless I start XEmacs from an rxvt
window. The CYGWIN variable is unset now on my system, but even
setting it to tty doesn't change this behavior. Interestingly, the
copy/paste works fine until I start a bash shell within XEmacs, then
everything stops working. Unless I started XEmacs from rxvt.
Yes, I know that XEmacs is not a support Cygwin tool or even part of
the release. And I do have a work-around. But I'm mentioning it
because it is behavior apparent only with 1.5.0 and not with 1.3.22,
and the work-around proposed above doesn't fix the behavior.
I can live with starting XEmacs from rxvt as a work-around, but
perhaps others will encounter similar problems with other apps when
1.5.0 is officially released and more people update to it.
BTW, I haven't recompiled XEmacs against the latest experimental
anything, since as I understand it, I need to wait for all the
libraries XEmacs uses (including X) to be recompiled for 1.5.0. Is
I have cygwin checked out and built from CVS. The behavior is
unchanged using the CVS dll (no surprise, I'm sure). I am willing
to do some debugging and research here, but have no idea where to
start. If someone can point me in a direction, I can do more
