Re: Tried mintty but it locks-up on enabling "Copy on select"

Turns out I tried again to see if some particular app was part of the problem.
Tried YIM, Word, etc. But couldn't pinpoint. But I did see the problem
again. Still occurred while in the Options menu but was not in the copy-on-
select menu.  Just switching between sub-menus.

Maybe I'll try again some time and use ollydbg.
