Yes, it seems like that's fixed.

Mintty seems to start faster than with v1, too.

I encountered two other issues though, while running cygport to build
the latest gawk testbuild:

  $ cygport gawk.cygport build
  >>> Compiling gawk-4.2.62-1.x86_64

- This ">>> Compiling ..." line is printed by cygport itself.  It's bold
  black without the ConPTY patch, but it's bold white with your ConPTY
  patch.  Any idea why?

- There's a good chance that pressing Ctrl-C at this point will not only
  exit cygport, but also the shell *and* mintty.  Is it possible that
  another call to init_console_handler is required when the process
  runs in the ConPTY?
