Re: Problems with emacs shell starting with 2011-05-05 snapshot

Starting with the 2011-05-05 snapshot, I can't start a shell under emacs. Here are the steps to reproduce:

1. Start emacs in a mintty window.
2. Type<Alt-x>shell<enter>

This yields the following error message in the shell buffer:

   sh: cannot set terminal process group (-1): Inappropriate ioctl for device
   sh: no job control in this shell

The problem with the 2011-05-05 snapshot goes away if I build cygwin1.dll myself. I used a CVS checkout as of 2011-05-05 22:31, which seems to be cutoff for that snapshot. The last change in the ChangeLog is

2011-05-05 Christopher Faylor <...>

	* (cygheap::close_ctty): Close ctty via close_with_arch().
	* (close_handle): Call debugger on failure.

I don't understand this. I simply built cygwin1.dll according to the instructions in the FAQ.

I haven't had a chance to build cygwin1.dll from later checkouts yet, so I don't know if the problems with later snapshots will go away too.
