This is the place to report the problem.  You may want to try looking
through the email archives for similar reports, if you have not already.
I do remember some questions brought before about "-nw" but I don't
recall details.

You can also look at the cygwin-announce list for an announcement from
the maintainer but unless it specifically asks for reports to be sent to
him directly, the proper way to engage him is through this list.
