Exactly. May be "annoying" was too emotional, but when I wrote that wiki
I was tired with convincing my reporters that "I can't do anything with that".
Wiki was rewritten a little.

As wiki said, I'm trying to combine cygterm with win32 terminal,
but it is not too easy, because my application compiled with VC,
so it does not link cygwin1.dll statically.
I'm in sort of debugging stage now...
