What you call "standard cygwin console" is the _windows_ console.

That depends on the terminal type. Some do wrap at the right side,
others don't, see the "am" capability in man 5 terminfo. In addition to
that, some do wrap as soon as the 80th position is filled, see the "sam"

That's the way the windows console behaves. Not much can be changed
here. Just run rxvt ;)
