MSYS users running mingw-get within a mintty or rxvt console observe intermittent and fragmented display of progress diagnostics.
The attached rebuild of mingw-get-0.dll from mingw-get-0.1-alpha-5.1 includes a forced fflush() on the console output stream, after each individual message is posted. Could users of the affected terminal emulators please test, and verify that this corrects the problem. If so, it can be immediately incorporated into a mingw-get-0.1-alpha-5..2 release, and merged to CVS trunk.
To test. please simply unlzma the attached in place of the existing c:/MinGW/libexec/mingw-get/mingw-get-0.dll, (with adjustment of the c:/MinGW prefix, as necessary to suit your installation). Running 'mingw-get update' should be sufficient to observe the effect.
