Hi, there's some problem with term.el and it doesn't work with Emacs21
on Windows 2000.

The first problem is term-exec-1 use /bin/sh to execute programs, which
should be cmdproxy.exe in the windows port.  And it assumes the program
'stty' exists, which is not the case.

The second problem comes after I change the hard-coded /bin/sh to
cmdproxy.exe.  Now I also use cmdproxy.exe as the shell, but the term
buffer doesn't echo what I've input, and I have to use C-j to enter
the commands.  RETURN key just doesn't work.

The third problem is I can't use the cygwin port of bash with term.  I
suspect it's part of the NL CR conversion problem, but can't fix it by

I also try to set process-coding-system and keyboard-coding-system to
'chinese-iso-8bit-unix, but it still doesn't work.

Any comments?
