What is the remote terminal? (another linux machine, a real hardware X
terminal... ?)
Comment 4 Pavel 2002-07-15 02:45:31 EDT
I'm using XFree86 for cygwin on Win2k, but I also tried to connect from another
linux machine (running RedHat 7.3 with XFree 4.2.0) and StarNet X-Win32. All
give same result.
Comment 5 George Lebl 2002-07-15 16:44:40 EDT
This should be fixed in if I remember correctly.  Several more related
bugs are fixed in CVS and so I'll make a very very soon.
Comment 6 Elliot Lee 2002-08-26 13:34:10 EDT
Works now, I'll assume it was fixed.
