- putty focus problem in XP

putty, the cursor becomes black, and so not visible with the default
black background. more importantly, about half the time the
characters are also rendered black on black, making them not visible
either. strangely, this is only for text that i type. the output of
programs (mutt, vi, etc.) is totally fine. i don't think this is not
a problem with putty, as on two other XP machines i've tested, things
work fine. somehow i think my system is screwed up.
perhaps relatedly, when i cursor over the putty window, the cursor
switches to the text tool as usual. however, instead of turning white
to accommodate the default black background of putty, it stays black
and is hence not visible.
i've cleaned the registry. uninstalled putty and re-installed several
times. release 0.60. anyone have any ideas?? thanks.
Re: putty focus problem in XP
i'm puttying to an OSX box, but does that matter?
everything works fine on two other machines, both the cursor fore- &
back-ground color as well as the pointer color when mousing over the
window. but on this one machine, everything breaks when i return to
putty after changing the focus. how could i have screwed up XP in
such a way??
