As of a couple days ago, my cygwin terminal has been acting up. Whenever I use the 'less'
command I get the warning that my terminal is not fully functional. When I use vi, the cursor never
moves from the top left corner. I can type the command to go to line five and then insert or delete
characters, but I can't see my self doing it. Also, the colors for vi variables and comments and
everything else changed.
I first noticed the problem after I installed both Matlab and Rational Rose software. I have
tried uninstalling, and reinstalling cygwin, but I still get the same error. I have also included
the output of 'cygcheck -s -v -r'.
