Thanks, that link helped. I didn't realise that hooking into cmd.exe
was the cause of many of Console2's problems and that running bash
directly, avoiding cmd.exe, fixed some of the problems with console2.
Console2 is still a bit of a shock coming from Linux where we have the
choice of lxterminal, gnome-terminal and konsole, all of which
basically work perfectly. AFAICT even apparently trivial stuff, like
the maximise button, doesn't work right in Console2.

I don't understand the following press release : "July 2nd, 2009 :
First release candidate of KDE 4.3 for Windows available ... This
release also provides some snapshots of unstable applications:
Konsole, ..." from http://windows.kde.org/news.php

Does this mean that KDE 4.3 had Konsole (but was removed in 4.5)?
