Not being entirely clueless and with my unix head on I did (from the bash 

  export CYGWIN=tty
  xemacs -nw.

With hindsight I can understand why this does not suffice, and adding
  set CYGWIN=tty
to cygwin.bat does indeed fix things.

So thanks for your efficacious (though a tad unfriendly) advice.
