When using vi via cygwin ssh to DragonFly, the cygwin terminal doesn't stay in sync with the server. The curser jumbles text on roll-over, etc... I tried different settings for the TERM variable on both. Is this is some kind of termcap problem? How should this be fixed? Does cygwin need to update their termcap or does DF need to accomodate cygwin in its termcap?

DF's termcap needs to be changed. But racing all possible terminal (emulators) to grab their changes is a definite no-go. There is such a nifty feature like setting TERMCAP environment so that the termcap entry corresponding to TERM is overridden. Sad thing tho that ssh doesn't pass along TERMCAP, but only TERM.

This bit me several times when ssh'ing inside of a screen session... One day i'll hack ssh (not that complicated) if there is a chance to get that included somewhere (at least DragonFly)
