Isn't mintty a "subsystem=windows" application which is supposed to
attach or create a console at some later point?  Maybe that's the
reason.  Off the top of my head I really don't know.  You provided
patches to Cygwin's console code already, so you're partially familiar
with the codebase.  Did you try to debug it?
