Greetings, Niels Kristian Jensen!

This may seem like a minor thing, but we have much trouble with
builds (started via Cygwin OpenSSH) which randomly hang forever - I
 if this could be a clue in this investigation.


Try upgrading your mintty, also, if it's about automated building
I don't see how's mintty can be involved.

If the "non-closure" of mintty is completely internal in mintty and not
a handshake-mistake with the cygwin dll or the OS, then I agree. It
seems to be the case, reading the link provided by Thomas Wolff.

What I wanted to say is that I don't understand, why do you use mintty in this
specific case.

Can you provide a bit more background? Do you use it exclusively to call SSH
to some remote host?

Hello Andrey,

let's forget about the hanging mintty window. I was chasing a ghost, it seems.
Mintty is not involved in the Jenkins automation chain.

I'll write another post where I try to list my trouble and experiments with hanging
Jenkins builds invoked via OpenSSH in cygwin on windows slaves/agents.

Best regards,
Niels Kristian Jensen
