Hello,

Thank you for the information.

I looked into this problem of GNU screen and found the
cause is very different from that of the problem I had
reported.

The problem I had reported is due to the failure of
sending signal, which is caused by mismatch of tokens
between ssh session and mintty session.

On the other hand, the problem you mentioned is due
to the difference in the behaviour of socket API.

In Linux, connect() in the client returns befor the
server calls accept(). However, in cygwin, connect()
does not return until the server calls accept().

Attached test code clarifies the difference.

[Result in Linux]
Server: Created.
Server: Binded.
Server: Listened.
Client: Created.
Client: Connected.
Client: Written.
Server: Accepted.
10: 1234567890
Server: Read.

[Result in Cygwin]
Server: Created.
Server: Binded.
Server: Listened.
Client: Created.
Server: Accepted.
Client: Connected.
Client: Written.
10: 1234567890
Server: Read.

I am not sure why cygwin behaves differently from
linux.
