Thanks for the clear problem report.
For the avoidance of doubt, since you mention both alternatives in your email,
we need to add --disable-narrowproto to build xterm with correctly working
scrollbars on cygwin.
I note that the list of platforms for which --enable-narrowproto is the
default in xterm's aclocal.m4 CF_ENABLE_NARROWPROTO macro (which includes
cygwin) doesn't match the list of platforms which default to narrow prototypes
in xproto (which doesn't include cygwin). This makes me wonder if the cygwin
platform default managed to get changed during modularization...
I'm afraid I didn't quite understand the explanation as to why Xfuncproto.h
might be wrong, so I'm wondering if any other X applications might also show
In any case, I'll see if I can get xterm rebuilt with this configuration change.
