Cygwin 1.5.25, I presume. Cygwin 1.5.25 is not supported under W7. Use
Cygwin 1.7 instead. It contains workarounds for a few really incredible
bugs introduced in Windows 7 in terms of console windows. I reported two
of them in the beta testing phase. One of them has been only partially
fixed (and introduced a new one in the W7 32 bit), the other one hasn't
been fixed at all in RTM.
