I have cygwin and WindowEyes and did a brief test.  I was able to log
into my Linux box and briefly use VI and the cursor was still blinking
and seemed to be in the right place.  I cannot speak for Solaris, but
maybe -- I just checked cygwin is indicated inmy terminfo, so that is
maybe why this is working.

Your life is like a penny.  You're going to lose it.  The question is:
How do
