Something in your $CYGWIN variable seems to be a problem (I'll look at
little further).  Setting it as you show, "stty sane" doesn't work for me
- this on Windows2000 with the 1.5.5 dll.  stty says it is unable to
perform all requested operations.  I suspect it's a cygwin bug though -
ncurses tries to reset things just as stty would, and is failing.
Probably (from reading the cygwin code, I've noticed examples) a newer
stty has been patched to use a cygwin-specific kludge to make it work.
My stty says its version is 2.0.15 (I'm not sure what package it's part
