OK, in c:/cygwin/usr/X11R6/bin/startxwin.sh Line 106 I have:
xterm -e /usr/bin/bash -l -sb -sl 3000 &
And in c:/cygwin/usr/X11R6/bin/startxwin.bat Line 151 I now have:
%RUN% xterm -e /usr/bin/bash -l -sb -sl 6000
Adding "-sb -sl 6000" did not seem to help.
I also created the file c:\Documents and Settings\a-siehei\.Xresources with these contents on a different computer
This seems to have no effect (affect?) either.
Can someone advise me as to what I am doing wrong?
