Any size larger than a few meg.  That is, any size that takes more than a few
milliseconds to seek to the end, I think.

We will need someone with W10 to test it and confirm it.
On W7 I have no issue at all with 250MB file

How long are the lines ?

can you try to update to latest ?
You have
less                 471-1                            OK
cygwin               2.1.0-1                          OK

Not so.  From the 'cygcheck -s -v -r' output file that was attached to my bug

0 /c/ToCygwin$ egrep '^(cygwin|less)' Karl2.cygcheck.out
cygwin                                2.3.1-1                 OK
less                                  481-1                   OK

sorry, reading the wrong file.

Did you look at the attached files?  I tried to keep the body of the email
small, per instructions.  But there is info attached.

How largish ?

On Cygwin 32 bit and W7-64 I see no problem with 224 Mbytes

     Cannot seek to that file position  (press RETURN)

in the bottom "command editing line" of the display.

No problem on LF-only files.  Does happen with either mintty or
launched from either bash or cmd.exe.

Two files are attached: Karl2.cygcheck.out, which is the 'cygcheck -s -v
and LessBugMoreInfo.txt, which contains background info and some
