I am writing to report two issues with the version of TeXmacs included in the latest cygwin repos.

Host OS: Windows 7 Pro and Windows 10 Pro ( two different systems and Antivirus)

Issue #1:

This issue occurs while navigating the GUI, so please bear with me while I attempt to put it into words ...

- Launch TeXmacs:

$ texmacs
TeXmacs] With linked TrueType support
     (GUI spawns)
- Click on Help from the menu bar
- Select the 'About' sub-menu item
- Mouse over the sub-menu and then drift off into the body of the edit window (the menu remains displayed at this point) - Now mouse up to anywhere on the top menu bar (no need to click anything)
     The GUI then closes prematurely and the following is displayed:
         texmacs: Fatal IO error 113 (Software caused connection abort) on X server :0.0. - This actually occurs when the above action is repeated when any sub-menu item is selected and then mousing off and onto the menu bar.

This is possibly the same issue as [1].

Please try the 1.20.5-2 test release of xserver, and see if that improves things.


Confirmed.  Installing the xorg-server 1.20.5-2 test release resolved Issue #1 initially reported.

Will 1.20.5-2 soon become the default package?

Best regards,
