- Subject: x-display setting -> ssh problem
I seem to have run into a problem.
I have been trying to chase down a case where when I use
'ssh' from bash from cygwin (98 or XP), when I was pressing
control-c, I lost the ssh session and ended back up at the local
cygwin prompt. It's as if though the ssh session didn't trap the
Now this didn't always happen -- so I backtracked. It seems to
boil down to whether or not I set 'DISPLAY' in my user ".profile"
I have various initializations that I want done for all users in
so my .profile only has:
# bash script
narrowed it down to manually setting DISPLAY, ssh, control-c -> kills
ssh session, but if display isn't set, it works fine.
Any ideas why DISPLAY would cause ssh to not correctly process control-c's?
