I decided to upgrade the box that I read my mail on (using mutt) to FreeBSD 4.10-STABLE. It has been running 4.9-STABLE since those days ;)
Now all too suddenly, I have a mad terminal, display getting messed up when I read my mail, edit a file, almost anything. The only change was the upgrade. To give a little more details I can gather, when I ssh to the box from another Unix terminal, this madness is not there at all. But before I upgraded, I was using Microshit windows for a couple of days, connecting to this box using Telneat (aka ShellGuard) and there was no problem. IIRC, there was no change at all to /etc/termcap during mergemaster. I'll appreciate any clues. Not that I desperately need to run on Windows, but just so that I can know what happened and how to fix it. In my .bash_profile, I init my terminal as cons25. I checked UPDATING to see if anything is mentioned, but no.
