Re: tmux-1.9a2 ctrl+b not working

I'm running tmux fine in mintty (64 bit version though). I have the
terminal type in mintty set to xterm256-color. I have this in my
.tmux.conf, though I don't think any of it is necessarily relevant in
your situation.

# Set prefix key to C-a
set -g prefix C-a
unbind C-b
bind C-a send-prefix

# So Vim works. With screen-256color most things work, but some keys such as
# HOME and END don't. With xterm-256color most things seem ok....of course
# this requires a terminal that really can emulate an xterm-256color.
set -g default-terminal "xterm-256color"
setw -g xterm-keys on
