Hello all,Question: Why are you doing this? What do you mean by "allow parent
terminal to closr[sic]"?
I figured out what was wrong.
It seems to be the statement 'exec 2>&1' that is no longer working.

Subject: rxvt hanging after latest cygwin update
I just upgraded my cygwin installation to the new release made available
the beginning of the month.
Since this upgrade, my rxvt launch script doesn't work anymore.
I have the following dos-batch script:
start /i /min /separate /b $PATH2CYG\bash --login -c "/startrxvt.sh 12
The startrxvt.sh script looks like this:
#Redirect IO to allow parent terminal to closr
exec 0< /dev/null
exec 1> ~/.xdmcp-errors
# Select font size
if [ -n "$1"]; then FONTSIZE=$1; fi
rxvt -bg black -fg green -fn "-*-Lucida
Console-*-*-*-*-$FONTSIZE-*-*-*-*-*-*-*" -sr -sl 1024 -e
"/bin/bash --login -i -x" &
The rxvt window opens but hangs. I don't see the scroll bar and there are
prompts. The window doesn't refresh, resize... nothing happens. I have to
kill it in order to get rid of it.
This script has worked for a long time and works on another machine which
haven't upgraded yet.
My system is running WindowsXP-SP1
If i run the commands manually, everything works ok.
Thnks for your help
