Subject: [gentoo-accessibility] screen rewrites in the cygwin terminal
Date: Fri, 05 Mar 2004 17:07:08
Hi all,

When I access my gentoo linux box remotely, I use the open ssh for windows package from, which is basically the cygwin ssh client.

Ever since I upgraded to the ncurses 5.4 series a few days ago, I have noticed that the screen gets rewritten every time I exit mutt, man, less and lynx to name a few programs.  The affect of this is that the whole screen gets re-read by my screen reader.

I have been able to isolate this to the cygwin terminfo entry.  It seems that something in the capabilities of the cygwin terminal has changed in the newest ncurses that causes this to happen.  Can someone assist me further in figuring out what changed and how to change it back?
