I do not doubt that it is so.
The first time I observed these problems with Emacs was when
Cygwin-1.5-17-1 was released: reinstalling 1.5.16-1 all worked fine and
I thinked that some snaps solved the problem. Successively I found that
reinstalling libncurses7, effectively, solve the problem.
But the habit to test snapshots remains!

I cannot answer to these questions. I can only confirm that for what I
know only Emacs has these problems.
