Writing into inactive screen buffer is broken #290
Windows Version 10.0.17763.1
This functionality is broken - text sent to the inactive screen buffer ends up in the active and thus visible on the screen.
It does not happen in Legacy mode.
A minimal project to reproduce the issue attached.
OK. I've investigated this, crafted a fix, had it reviewed, and checked it in as of today.
I've also installed a variation on the sample you provided into our feature test suite to ensure that we don't mess this up again in the future. Or at least that we don't mess it up in this very specific way. :P
Thank you very, very much for providing the minimal repro code. It dramatically accelerated the pace at which I could turn around this bug.
It should reach Insiders builds in about 3 weeks.
