Cygwin and SAP


I have problems using Cygwin when for the SAP tools sapinst, SAPup, and so on....

The applications launches ok, and the text boxes and buttons seems ok. The problem is when

typing in a text box, the graphics does not update!

(not until I minimize and then again maximize the window on my PC, I can see the text previously typed)

I havn't get in to the details of cygwin, but assume there might be som options to tune here?

    Not familiar with this software.... but if you're calling sapinst you need the right version of java... I have also seen problems with refreshing with working in a terminal to a remote box... usually minimize and maximize the screen help...

    Anyhow i presume the best is to as Cygwin.
