my .inputrc contains a single line: "set bell-style none"

my stty settings are the default ( I run no explicit command in any dot
files to set them ) but stty reports:
speed 38400 baud; line = -96;
eol = M-^?; eol2 = M-^?;

CYGWIN=tty ntea nontsec binmode

My .vimrc is huge. 'nuff said.

My point was not that everyone should copy my settings, but that there
may have been some obvious thing in Kevin's settings that was messing
things up; e.g. 'stty erase ^h" or something similar but wrong. To tell
you the truth, I can't seem to get backspace to *not* work in vim, even
after messing up the CYGWIN and stty settings...go figure.

My build is a true X11 app, and therefore requires an Xserver running on
your computer.
