ConEmu build: 170402 preview x64
OS version: Windows 10 build 1703 x64
Used shell version (Far Manager, git-bash, cmd, powershell, cygwin, whatever): WSL bash.exe

Problem description

The response to Issue 674, concerning SSH and ConEmu was:

"Unless mouse is working in standalone BashOnWindows, you chose wrong place to report your problem"

But under the creators update, the mouse does work in standalone bash (mc, tmux, vim) in WSL, but it's not working under ConEmu

Steps to reproduce

  1. Under Settings > Keys & Macros > Mouse: Select "X" Send mouse events to console
  2. Under Startup > Tasks > Enter: %windir%\system32\bash.exe -cur_console:p

Launch bash.exe inside conemu and open "mc". Try using the mouse.

Actual results

Text is only highlighted with the mouse. The cursor doesn't actually respond to the mouse.

Expected results

Expected ConEmu to respond to the mouse, similar to bash.exe running directly inside conhost.

Use existing issues instead of creating duplicates. They are not so far

@Maximus5 My apologies for the duplicate. I don't have a scroll wheel so I thought the previously closed issue 674 was the best reference. I should have read through the scroll wheel one in detail.
