Re: rxvt and text output problems

ftp and friends from NT use direct console I/O functions to manipulate the
screen buffer under NT.  Cygwin has no way to intercept another process's
direct console I/O win32 calls, unless the other process is also a Cygwin

I don't think this'll change anytime soon, because to fix it would require a
lovely RPC filter monitoring csrss.exe activity...
