Its been forever and a day since I looked at that code but I was definitely
left with the impression that the Win32 console APIs that Cygwin uses for
the terminal settings does not support actual bold characters. This was
a long time ago (4 years?) so this may no longer be an issue but the
behavior you describe is synonymous with my recollections in this regard.
