This is intentional behaviour. The pseudo console has its own screen buffer behind, and redraws the screen based on the screen buffer at undetermined timing. The screen buffer is empty at the beginning, so the screen should be cleared at the opening of the pty so that the real screen and the screen buffer are synchronozed. The clear screen is prevented when TERM=dumb, so you can see what happens if clear screen is not done by following steps. 1) Execute ls or ps to draw something to screen. 2) env TERM=dumb ssh <cygwin-hostname> 3) Execute cmd.exe. -- Takashi Yano <takashi.y...@nifty.ne.jp> -- Problem reports: http://cygwin.com/problems.html FAQ: http://cygwin.com/faq/ Documentation: http://cygwin.com/docs.html Unsubscribe info: http://cygwin.com/ml/#unsubscribe-simple
