I have no idea what cause this problem. If you think this is linked to readline version, I can try to downgrade the readline version used to build the binary if needed (though I am not sure how to buld readline5 on mingw). I do not have this issue under Wine. I found a lot of report of similar problem with other software. For example: <http://superuser.com/questions/424610/underscore-cursor-vanishes-when-using-arrow-keys> <http://www.scala-lang.org/node/6794> > 2. One also loses CTRL-C with this 2.6/6.2, again not a big deal. What do you mean by losing CTRL-C ? This seems to work under wine. Thanks for your tests! Bill.
