[Bug] C-n keybinding doesn't work with GNU texinfo (Windows 6.1.7601 64bit)

GNU texinfo normally has emacs keybinding.
I found it strange, because C-n navigation key, which normally moves
cursor down,
doesn't work. C-f, C-b, and C-p works as expected to move cursor one
forward, one character backward, and one line backward.
I'm using latest cygwin, from setup-x86_64.exe version 2850, on Windows
64 bit.

Here is info version
info (GNU texinfo) 5.2

Here are steps to reproduce the problem.
1. Open cygwin terminal.
2. Type "info info" to display info page about GNU texinfo.
3. Press C-n (CTRL + n) to move the cursor

Expected result: C-n key combination moves the cursor one line down.

Actual result: An error message about unknown command is displayed.
"Unknown command (C-n)."

This malicious behavior isn't reproducible on Ubuntu version of GNU
texinfo. Tested on 14.04.1 with latest updates.
