You can download older sources from 
https://github.com/mintty/mintty/releases and build them yourself.
Older versions may need some source or makefile tweaks to compile, I 
should publish my notes about this.

I would suspect the latter as there have not been recent changes (since 
2.2.1) in the actual terminal emulation.

Actually I have found a bug in the combination of auto wraparound mode 
with scrolling region margins and origin mode.
Once fixed, that could even affect the issue, we'll see.
