Now C-h and Backspace work as expected when I run emacs in a Cygwin 
console, provided I do stty erase ^? first.  Am I right in assuming that 
this won't be necessary once the termios default is changed as Andy 
suggested?  I did patch the terminfo database, but that didn't do it.  I 
don't really understand much about how terminals work.

$ tput -T cygwin kbs | cat -v
$ stty -a | grep erase
... erase = ^H ...
