I use less constantly and have not noticed that problem.  Perhaps if you
send an example of one of you command lines that shows the problem someone
could try to reproduce the problem.

It sounds like less is misunderstanding your screen size.  What do you get
for 'stty -a'?  How do you start your Cygwin environment?
