NTEmacs shell/CygWin: should control-C work?

If I've missed this in the FAQ, user's manual, or (poorly searchable)
archives, please point me to what I've missed.  

In a shell buffer in NTEmacs configured per the shell-setup instructions 
in the CygWin FAQ at http://sources.redhat.com/cygwin/faq/faq.html#SEC5 , 
control-C doesn't seem to work.

That is, typing two control-C's in Emacs (to send a control-C to bash) 
doesn't kill a long-running command (e.g., like "du /" or "sleep 10").  

Emacs does seem to flash the window title bar, but I can't tell what it's 
trying to indicate.  Does this seem to be an NTEmacs/CygWin interaction
problem, or just an NTEmacs problem (not for the CygWin list)?

Is control-C still supported in CygWin and between NTEmacs and CygWin?  (I 
just upgraded from CygWin B20 (or so), and not yet used to how things work
now.)

Thanks,
Daniel
