Re: Scrolling problems with rxvt .



Bingo, well at least you seems to suggest what the problem is.  Yes, previously I started
rxvt from a .bat file.  I am trying your suggestion.  Its too early to say if calling
rxvt directly corrects the problem.

If your suggestion works, I wonder why DOS would cause a problem.  After all, calling
an application from a Windows NT 4.0 DOS windows or from a shortcut should not affect
the application in any way (then again, we are talking about Microsoft here... ;) ).

Thanks.

P.S.  Lotus Notes really sucks.  Sorry if my email's format is a bit odd.

I have been using rxvt for a long time now and I have yet to see this
problem.  I can only assume that you are running rxvt from a dos
window.  If that is the case then I belive your problem is dos not rxvt.

Create a short cut to rxvt with the following command line and you will not
have any problems.
C:\cygwin\bin\rxvt.exe -sr -sl 9999 -tn rxvt -ls -e bash --login -i
