Symlinks+cygdrive causes flashing taskbar ??
Tue Jun 26 16:16:00 GMT 2001
How is it suggested that I proceed to find the cause of this? I've tried
fiddling all the variables I can think of and I don't seem to be able to
shake it. It's not always noticable, because the flashing isn't continuous
or else the painting is cached by Windows...
