May I guess that you occasionally get personal mail? ;-)

pico - tiny editor that comes with 'pine' (email/news client), there is also
nano - which is similar (editors).

First of all: It isn't BROWSER dependant, it appears in the "cygwin.bat"
console on *Win98SE* at least - _as long as you use the BUTTONS on the
console window "menu" bar_.
Seems to be totally independent of .inputrc contents too.
I have a working Del and Insert key now... but this is what I get with the
$ cat >z
$ cat z
This is the "paste" you have - unless .inputrc contains key bindings for

Can't check, but you're probably right.
I was a bit quick again I believe, once again beeing tired...
Right now I can't get access to the FAQ of some mysterious reason.
Is the cygwin server running som kind of update? (23:42 GMT+1)

That probably is the cause, as I had to *retype* it into pico. I'm used to
"have an offset" when typing
(hitting keys NEXT TO those intended :-/
"[" is alt_gr+8, "]" is alt_gr+9 - on swedish keyboards).
my current ~/.inputrc appended,
if it might matter in the search of the true cause.
