Hi Christopher,

   I have a feeling from your arrogant attitude, that there is no chance to 
pay attention to this issue, am I right? That's a pity, because this 
attitude will result in people don't want to waste their time with trying to 
help make this software better. I really don't understand that. I'm happy 
when someone notify me to bug in my software, moreover when he spends his 
time to precisely describe the bug and how to reproduce it. It's not clever 
to make him look stupid.

   I feel sad from this attitude.

   ConEmu developer is open to try to solve this issue. But I thought that 
it would be much better to try to solve it for all console emulators (that 
means by Cygwin), not for ConEmu only.

   Have a nice day.

 Dawid Ferenczy
