proper terminal type for tcsh under Cygwin?

set term=vt100 yields:
tcsh: No entry for terminal type "vt100"
tcsh: using dumb terminal settings.
But I doubt it would work anyway, because the window can be resized, and
I don't think the vt100 entry is that smart.

set term=cygwin yields no insert mode when you move the cursor into the
middle of a word. The new characters overwrite the old characters, but a
C-r shows that the new characters really were inserted.
