My STCs still don't work right for me under the 2011-10-10 snapshot.
The bash subprocess no longer shows as stopped when I run ps, but it
doesn't produce any output either, and it doesn't terminate for several
minutes.  I eventually get the following message on the terminal

       1 [main] bash 7604 sig_send: wait for sig_complete event failed,
signal -39, rc 258, Win32 error 0

and bash leaves a stackdump. Are you seeing something different?

For me it works on Cygwin the same as it does on Linux. No hang, obviously. If it worked like the above I wouldn't have announced a fix.

I didn't think you would have, but it's puzzling that it fails on my system. I've just replicated the problem on a second computer (this one running XP SP3, so the OS isn't the issue).

In addition, the 2011-10-10 snapshot doesn't work well with xterm. When I start xterm, I see

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

The xterm problem goes away when I revert to the 2011-08-29 snapshot.
