I have a terminfo file for cygwin on my Debian box.
/etc/terminfo/c/cygwin and /usr/share/terminfo/c/cygwin (I think there's a symlink somewhere in one of the paths), it comes from ncurses-base.

I'm running sid last updated yesterday.

I usually have a GPG digital signature included as an attachment.
See http://www.gnupg.org/ for info about these digital signatures.
My key was last signed 10/14/2003. If you use GPG *please* see me about
