Re: Two windows bugs

Perhaps, since Brane is able to work with this on Cygwin without a
problem and Geoff is not, there is an environmental solution? I ask
because I have the same behavior with Cygwin versus the cmd.exe prompt.
  This occurs only when being prompted for the password (e.g. if changed
via a Windows prompt), and is very easily duplicated in my environment
by removing the password.

On my system CYGWIN is set to "tty" only. And if I change a password I
get the following:
Authentication realm: <http://server:7380> Repository message here

followed by a blank line and nothing else - no prompt, no input.

It does not take any input at all. A Control-C after this will try to
execute any input as a command. I don't know if this is a strictly neon
problem if as others have indicated it works under zsh and some
instances of bash. I haven't done any further testing, sorry, as my
work around has been to set up the password using cmd.exe then return to
Cygwin (e.g. has not been a big enough issue for me)
