- Subject: bash loop using mintty
I reported a couple of times of the bash loop problem before. But it seems the problem could bot be duplicated
I use "mintty -" to start up a terminal session.
Today, I found out the problem. The loop is caused by set -o vi in my .bashrc. After I removed that statement,
I can hit shift F12 without bash looping (reported by task manager).
If I start mintty without -, shift F12 just gives 4;2~ back.
Once I enter set -o vi, shift F12 hang and bash starts looping
With this information, I hope mintty users can duplicate this problem and hopefully a fix could be available.
