- Subject: help developing a good problem report
I've been noticing an issue with cygwin that I find annoying and would
like to fix.
Ive never submitted a cygwin problem report before so this is a first.
My issue now is that I dont actually understand the problem well
enough to give a good report.
Here is what is happening:
I'm using mintty to run ssh and connect to a remote box.
I shutdown the remote box.
ssh client exits with error
Mintty locks up and does not accept user input (no keystrokes) till
windows kills the session and it is restarted.
Mintty does not lock up if I exit the remote ssh session properly
without a remote shutdown.
Always reproducible on win 7 64bit host.
How can I determine if the problem is ssh or mintty?
What additional information is needed?
