Re: Some programs (vi, ssh) crash when screen buffer height is big

Greetings, Sous Lesquels!

If you do not like the answer to your question, it doesn't make the answer
wrong, or unhelpful, or what-you-have-called-it.

That's because of how ConEmu is implemented - it is a wrapper for native
console, not a separate implementation of it.

You don't understand, what you are asking for, that's what it have to do.

My point is the intersection. Cygwin tools do not intersect with airplanes or
stick figures.
Your examples are not valid.

Since ConEmu is not a separate program, but merely a wrapper to native
console, you're not asking the right question.
Therefore, there's no right answer to give.

It doesn't hurt when you don't twist it.

It isn't better or worse - it is DIFFERENT. Built for a different purpose with
different goals in mind.
However, if we narrow the selection choice to "works as Cygwin terminal",
ConEmu will have the same score as native windows terminal just by an
extension of being a wrapper for one, as it is viewed from Cygwin's side.

Now, dragging the topic into personal attacks would contribute even less.
