I do, and it's the same as it's always been for me: block inverse, not
"obscuring" in any way. Soren, do you have whacked-out colors set up or a goofy
PS1 or something? I've got this:
PS1=$'\\[\\033]0;\\w\\007\n\\033[32m\\]\\u@\\h \\[\\033[33m\\w\\033[0m\\]\n$ '
and that gives me
where "MyLogin@MyComputerName" is green, "~" is a sickly yellow, "$" is black,
and the "_" is really a block cursor that's black and inverses the character
under it. Screen background is white. Works like a charm, and I believe it's
the Cygwin-installed default.
