Cygwin windows won't close

Cygwin list mailing list
Hi

I can't close Cygwin windows. When I click on the X at the upper-right hand corner of the window, it just hangs. When I click on the X again, the title bar displays, "(Not Responding)". Prior to attempting to close the window, everything works fine. I did use the 64-bit version for installation - setup-x86_64.exe.

Thanks.

I assume you mean the Mintty (aka Cygwin Terminal) please confirm.

I mean the Cygwin command-window terminal, invoked by this shortcut:

C:\cygwin64\bin\mintty.exe -i /Cygwin-Terminal.ico -

Thanks

Does it happen if you try to close the terminal immediately after starting?
Did you run any specific applications for it to happen?
Any alterations to shell startup scripts?

Does it happen if you try to close the terminal immediately after starting?

Yes, as well as any time after that.

Did you run any specific applications for it to happen?

No. Even if I just open the window, and then attempt to close it, it does this.

Any alterations to shell startup scripts?

In .bashrc, I have at the end, after all the commented out stuff:
set -o vi
set tabcomplete
alias path="echo $PATH | perl -pe 's/:/\n/g'"
alias cdpath="echo $CDPATH | perl -pe 's/:/\n/g'"
export FIGNORE=.o:.java~:.class:.bak
alias wpwd='cygpath --windows `pwd`'

if [ -z "$RANPROFILE" ]; then
  PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:$PATH"
Fi

That's about all I've done to it.

Thanks,
Lyle

Then I don't see much of the cause for such a behavior from Cygwin side.
May be other software interfering. Do you have a particularly zealous
"antivirus", pehaps?

We're using "Symantec Endpoint Protection", Version 14.

I could see an anti-virus program preventing the execution of a Cygwin window, but not the closing of one.

If you wait for a few minutes is the result different?  If you have a
different experience based on time expended then the likelihood of an
interfering AV program is greater.

I have seen Symantec in the past creating such problems.
Probably they inject something in the call sequence.


PS: can you please use a sane mail program ?
Your reply to Andrey has no proper indentation,
and it is difficult to split your reply from Andrey's message.

Which brings me to this suggestions: Please try option
ConfirmExit=false, does the behaviour change?

Despite pending response to my diagnostic request, it can well be that
the start of `ps` to construct the process list shown with the exit
confirmation has this effect. I've uploaded a patch to avoid it,
constructing the list internally from /proc, to the mintty repository.
