Hello list

First off; I've been using cygwin for years, on and off, but this is the first 
time I have joined the ML, so I just like to say _fantastic_work_guys_ to all 

A minor problem (possible bug): If I try to run xemacs in the cygwin terminal,  
without an X window, via the -nw option, its behaviour is a little stange:

Ctrl-g, which normally aborts the current key sequence or command, causes 
xemacs to exit (crash?) immediately.

If anyone has a handle on what gives here, I'd appreciate it. Firing up xemacs
