OTOH, in my testing this only occurs for DejaVu Sans Mono. I installed
Liberation Mono and Noto Mono as well and the above problem never occurs
with them. Weird. I'm about to let this slip as a font bug.
as you prob know ive been testing on W7. i found a W10 virtual machine here:
but it requires 4GB RAM just for the image. since i only have 4GB total on my
system the image wont load into virtualbox.
i can see about upgrading my system - but i wont bother if you are intent on
wiping your hands of this anyway
let me know - thanks
I created new developer snapshots for testing. Please give the latest from https://cygwin.com/snapshots/ a try.
Consolas: invalid encoding: hollow box, unknown glyph: boxed question mark
Lucida Console: invalid encoding: medium shade, unknown glyph: hollow box
so far it's fine, but:
Raster Fonts: output of invalid encoding hangs cygwin...
This will be my last action for the next 4 weeks though. I'll be back in October.
I'll try to check the code.
