I don't know if this is the "officially correct" answer or not, but I
find that ^C doesn't work right with some programs when run from CMD.EXE
unless I have the "tty" flag added to the CYGWIN environment variable.
The users' guide has a section on how to do this, I'm sure.
A better solution, in my opinion, is to ditch CMD.EXE completely and use
rxvt as the terminal -- it will work equally well regardless of whether
XFree86 is running or not.
