Created attachment 274811 [details] [diff] [review] add ssh-agent to start-msvc*.bat files CVS interactions in MozillaBuild are easier if you run ssh-agent and then ssh-add your key to it, but it would be even easier if ssh-agent was already running and you only had to run ssh-add. One way to do this is to start ssh-agent before rxvt and then start rxvt as a client of ssh-agent. I've been running MozillaBuild like this for a while now, and I can't detect any issues with it. Here's a patch to the start-msvc*.bat files that implements it.
Attachment #274811 - Flags: review?(benjamin)
The ssh-agent process terminates when you close the rxvt, right?

There seems to be some invalid char (at least on my mac) after -backspacekey Anyone else see that?
Depends on what "invalid char" means... it's a backspace character, which is nonprintable but important for a functional shell.
That would explain it.
