I've now tried your patched binaries on two systems. On one they don't run,
on the other I saw no noticeable effect, particularly no impact on the
pty/console interoperability...
Try starting cmd from your shell in mintty and do some native stuff.
I've now self-compiled cygwin dll on a third system and can run a cygwin console. But the build process did not generate the cygwin-console-helper, maybe that's the reason why mintty does not start?

You'll notice two differences:

- cmd history works
In the cygwin console, it does not, echos the cursor-up escape sequence instead. See my previous comment that I think ConPTY should only be applied if running at a pty. (And for other reasons only when starting a non-cygwin app.)
- dir /p will actually page
Does it also translate the character set?
Test case, when running in a German UI Windows:
