RE: 1.5.1 issue?

First, apologies if this isn't continuing at the
appropriate point in the thread, but I've been having
problems posting from my usual account. Anyway, back
to what I wanted to say:

I see something very like this on 1.3.22 running bash
in rxvt, running a windows process, which itself has
spawned something (terminology almost certainly not
correct). Noted because it happens with MS nmake under

It does not occur (as badly?) when running bash from

It does not occur when strace is running (execution
terminates as expected)

There follows a test case which might be said bug.
Uses a batch file to launch something which will take
a while, but should terminate on ^C.

$ cd \usr\doc\cygwin

$ cat <<EOF >test.bat

c:\winnt\system32\find /V /N "unlikely bit of text"


$ ./test.bat



Note that

/cygdrive/c/winnt/system32/find. /V /N \"unlikely bit
of text\" '*.*'

terminates OK.
