    most old gnuwin32 tools are still working in Win7 64bit, but less just goes into infinite loop.
    Even "less --help" has this behavior!

    (1) Does this also happen if you do a

    SET LESS=-X

    in the shell?

    (2) If you install the cygwin basis package, and use the 'less' from there, does the error also occur?

    With the "-X" option i'm getting some output, but it still doesn't work properly.
    cygwin less shows this
    WARNING: terminal is not fully functional
