[tex-live] texconfig bug

A Cygwin user reported that his terminal settings were changed after 
running texconfig (with no arguments, pressing return to enter 
interactive mode).  I think the problem is in the termCtl function in 
texconfig-dialog (around line 139), where 'reset' and 'stty sane' are 
called.  Shouldn't the program instead save and restore the terminal 

I haven't tried to look into where and why 'termCtl reset' is used, so 
maybe there's a good reason for the current behavior.
