comment Backspace does not work in Cygwin
@Rachel Thanks, though I found out that my problem was that the Cygwin install missed some important files (like /usr/lib/terminfo). I don't know why they were missing; found someone else with that issue, went into setup and told terminfo and termcap to reinstall, and everything worked.

@Rachel Did you ever resolve this? I'm seeing the same issue with a fresh Cygwin install. :(

comment Backspace does not work in Cygwin
Did you ever resolve this? I'm seeing it now on my new Cygwin install, though it previously worked. It's worth noting that you aren't getting "a space": It's failing to move the cursor back to erase the character. The space you're seeing is the space that was supposed to stomp on the previous character. If you hit ^L you can see that backspace IS working. This is why stty isn't fixing things. It's almost like the CMD shell that Cygwin is bound to is failing to interpret cursor movement.
