Me too, but IMO something needs to be done.  FWIW, this "very long
standing cygwin behavior" was changed from SIGHUP to SIGINT in the
following:

    2001-07-25  Kazuhiro Fujieda  <fujieda@jaist.ac.jp>

        * exception.cc (ctrl_c_handler): Send SIGTERM to myself when
        catch CTRL_SHUTDOWN_EVENT.

I share the above concern too.  However, only services can rely on this
behavior.  Additionally, it is likely only services that have been
ported to be true NT services (i.e., do not run under cygrunsrv) could
be affected.  The set of such services is most likely very small --
possibly only containing inetd.
