When the mouse is pressed 'down' on the prompt's scrollbar, say during a long command (
dir /a /s c:\ for instance), output seems to be paused.
Not only that, but the CPU usage for
cmd.exe drops to zero as long as the mouse stays down. When it is released, CPU usage returns to normal.
Does this mean terminal commands are suspended during mousedown in this manner? Or is the output merely paused? The lack of any CPU usage seems to point suspiciously towards a process suspension.
