The problem was observed in msys-1.0.10.exe on Windows
XP. On launch, rxvt behaves fine. However, as soon as
the window is resized or text is highlighted with the
mouse the window stops responding to any keyboard
input. The window closes without any problem but zombi
process sh.exe remains alive and irresponsive. This
happens on both of my machines: Dell Latitude D600
(laptop) and Athlon XP 2800+ (desktop).

    Hmm... I can't make it fail for me. Did you modify your
    msys.bat file any?

    I can make it fail by resizing, but sometimes it takes a few
    tries. I can't get it to freeze by highlighting text though. It
    doesn't really "freeze" though because you can still scroll up
    & down and even highlight text, it's just the keyboard input
    that stops (and it leaves the zombie sh.exe).

    Luke,

    If echo text or cat a file from your ~/.profile file does
    this resolve the issue?

    No, it still happens sometimes.

    The MSYS-1.0.11-2004.04.03-1.exe snapshot should have fixed
    this. Please confirm.
