I recently installed MingW/Msys on my XP Pro box (SP 3). When I attempt to open a Mingw shell as a console it behaves incorrectly. The shell window opens for perhaps 5 seconds and then the window closes and the full screen opens up without scroll bars, etc. I can use this shell display, but it is clumsy and wierd. Can anyone tell me what's going on?
The same download works fine on a different XP box I have and also on a Win7 box.
