Done, although I've manually stripped out some company-specific info
I'd rather not publish on the Internet.

According to the 'About' dialog, I am using 0.4.4, which came with
yesterday's Cygwin-1.7 fresh install.

I'm invoking it from cygwin.bat like this (instead of bash --login -i):
cygstart mintty --size=88,30 -

However I get the same problem if I simply run
c:\cygwin-1.7\bin\mintty.exe from a Windows cmd.exe prompt, when one
instance is already running.

Yes, I am running various 1.5 processes (including mintty) at the same
time. I can try shutting down all 1.5 minttys if you like.

Please let me know if you need any more info from me.
