On a WIN2K machine with latest release of X in
CYGWIN,
when I use nedit with -display and -server and filename
options it causes a telnet session running in an rxvt
window to hang. The options used dont seem to affect
the hang situation - I tried with out them.

    Please send us the first 8 lines from "Help > Version" (or the
    output from "nedit -V") which will give us extra information to
    help us reproduce your problem.

    So you start rxvt on Windows, telnet to another host, start
    nedit there and it freezes? Can you open another connection
    to see whether the nedit process still runs? What happens if
    you use ssh? What is the exact command line you use?

    The sequence for startup is win2k, then cygwin.
    Then under cygwin I start rxvt and then X so rxvt terminal is
    not under X manager.
    Then in rxvt window I start telnet.
    Then in any other window I start nedit and bam - it hits.and
    telnet hangs
    I must say it hits about 90% of the time, usually with a large
    ndit file.
    I noted that it makes no difference where I start nedi, as I
    tried it in a pure X under CYGWIN environment.

    The command line I use is nedit -display 127.0.0.1:0.0
    filename
    Ive not tried ssh
    and not sure what you mean about open another connection
    to see if nedit still runs?
    Do you mean kill the hung telnet, leave nedit running and
    start another telnet?

    Ah, I see, I thought you would start NEdit on a second host,
    which you connect to via telnet. So I have a different set
    of questions: Does nedit still run normally after telnet
    freezes? If it doesn't, how much CPU does it use? Do you
    have DDD installed? What happens if you start DDD? What
    happens if you start telnet in a plain bash instead of rxvt?

    (Someone removed our warning, 0.93.95 is untested.)
