Wierd!  I was really expecting it to.  I am HIGHLY interested in the exact
wording vi gave you when you tried to run vi with TERM set to linux.  I
guess that means Cygwin's terminfo doesn't support the "linux" terminal.
Considering what Cygwin is, perhaps that does make sense.  Dunno.

Yeah, sorry bout that.  I was going to suggest that too.  Then I got side
tracked by writing about csh and forgot to mention it.  I'm still kind of
shocked that vi didn't recognize the linux terminal.
