Hi, when I read this, I wondered whether this bug could be fixed:
- Fix a bug in controlling tty handling when duplicating a console descriptor.
but it isn't.
I had later found (and reported to cygwin-developers) that the terminal
response to terminal queries (like cursor position request or device
attribute request) is placed in the wrong buffer because there are
different objects (descriptors?) for stdin and stdout, so the response
would stay in Nirvana and never reach the application. (And it used to
work in CYGWIN=tty mode because curiously, in that case, the console
handles would have been shared for stdin and stdout.)
Since you seem to have just looked at this area of the console code,
could you give it check?
