If I'm in Bash on my Ubuntu system I can use Ctrl+Left Arrow or Right
Arrow to navigate one word at a time to the left and right. When I use
Cygwin it doesn't react to the Ctrl, responding as if I only had
pressed the Left or Right Arrow. Is there a way to fix this?
The next step is when I log in from an Ubuntu 9.10 system to Cygwin 6
using SSH. If I use Shift+Arrow Key this way there seem to be a
problem with the escape codes. Here is some hopefully relevant console
kentl@THI008:~/workdir$ echo $TERM
kentl@THI008:~/workdir$ ssh 192.168.36.198
