Greetings, Thomas Wolff!

Exactly as described.
Start Cygwin using cygwin.bat
Enter command
Enter command
echo 6789 123456789 123456789 123456789 123456789 123456789 123456789
Tap twice to pull the first entered command from history.
Observe part of the second command remaining on the screen.

I tried playing with locale and chcp settings to no apparent effect.

Try with Win7 or not "new" Win10 native console.
