font issues on Windows 7?
Tue Dec 8 13:46:00 GMT 2009
I have a problem with spurious pixels showing up in my xterm window
with the latest 1.7-beta on Windows 7.
I open a new xterm (after starting Xwin in multiwindow mode) with:
xterm -sb -sl 1000 +tb -fg white -bg black -font
Initially, all is well, but eventually I get more and more spurious
pixel-size dots on the left-most line of a character box. Usually,
this affects only the first column, but I have seen it in other columns as
well. It's a bit hard to describe but the net effect is that
after using a window for a while there is effectively an irregularly dotted
line between the left scrollbar and the first character column,
and typically the prompt '$' will have a few dots on the left side of the
character. It may not show up with a white-background
window and it's not really a big deal but it does get annoying after a
I never seen this problem before when I used previous versions of Cygwin/X
on Windows XP.
Does anybody else have a similar experience?
