mintty problem with "tail -f" on Windows XP with virtual desktops
Thu Mar 31 18:45:00 GMT 2011
I am really glad I switched from rxvt to mintty as it works great with or without X11.
I am seeing one problem, though, where I wonder if there is a fix.
I have observed the problem when switching between virtual desktops for both Windows
Desktop Manager and Dexpot Desktop Manager.
I frequently remote into servers and run "tail -f" to monitor various log files.
I have noticed when I switched to another virtual desktop, the mintty sessions
in the hidden virtual desktops do not get updated. When I switch back to the
desktop and hit the enter key within the mintty window it seems to catch up.
But, for some reason, the windows display gets jumbled.
Is there a way to refresh the window such that it looks normal without disturbing
the running process (tail)?
