about the freezing problem i've previously mentioned, i didn't succeed to
reproduce it. Sometimes it occurs, and then
always occurs while the PC isn't restarted, sometimes it never happens.
I didn't have the time to investigate more on this problem, but i'll try
latest releases soon.
One more amazing thing, there's a way to 'unfreeze' MSYS : closing an
Explorer Window. I'm not joking, close an
Explorer Window, if you don't have one opened, then open one and close it.
MSYS starts, strange, isn't it ?
I think, there's a trouble with paths, i have commented Cygwin's path in my
autoexec.bat, then the problem never
appears. Is it the cause ? I don't know indeed, since i can't surely
reproduce the problem.
