I setup sshd in cygwin and use PuTTY to login. Everything seems going
well. But when I start mc(GNU Midnight Commander 4.5.55) and use
arrow keys to move the cursor bar among listed files, strange things
When I press down key, a 'B' charactor appears in the prompt line (the
line with a '$' at the most left) and cursor bar doesn't move. And when
I press up key, a 'A' appears instead. However, I still have some
chances (about 1 out of 10 tries) to move the cursor bar successfully.
I have tried exporting TERM=linux, but the annoying A/B's still remains. :(
If I use the cygwin.bat directly form the start menu and export
TERM=linux, mc works very well.
I have searched the cygwin mailing list archive using keywords mc and
putty, but nothing helpful is found. Anyone had met the same problem
here? Any help will be much appreciated.
