What is the remote terminal? (another linux machine, a real hardware X
terminal... ?)

Comment 4 Pavel 2002-07-15 06:45:31 UTC
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 20:44:40 UTC
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 17:34:10 UTC
Works now, I'll assume it was fixed.
