When using vi via cygwin ssh to DragonFly, the cygwin terminal doesn't

this is some kind of termcap problem? How should this be fixed? Does
cygwin need to update their termcap or does DF need to accomodate
cygwin in its termcap?
DF's termcap needs to be changed. But racing all possible terminal
(emulators) to grab their changes is a definite no-go. There is such a
nifty feature like setting TERMCAP environment so that the termcap
entry corresponding to TERM is overridden. Sad thing tho that ssh
doesn't pass along TERMCAP, but only TERM.
This bit me several times when ssh'ing inside of a screen session...
One day i'll hack ssh (not that complicated) if there is a chance to
get that included somewhere (at least DragonFly)
