Ah right, thanks, it works :-)

The cygwin user guide mentions that putting tty in will make Job control via
^Z work, and that putting in tty means that standard input, output and
error are in binary mode rather than text.
That actually makes sense to me now. The reason why I didn't try removing
tty before was that emacs was complaining that standard input was not a tty,
but to me the variablename's presence in the CYGWIN variable was implying
that it was a tty.
Anyway thanks again
