Works fine for me.

Start by examing your assumptions - run and post output from:
$ cmd /c ver
$ uname -srvmo
$ mintty --version

Next check your Cygwin or mintty startup and post the mintty startup command
here. Then attach your ~/.minttyrc as text to your post: sometimes you make a
tweak and forget, then much later, remember you messed yourself up. ;^>
Also check if you have an /etc/minttyrc which may change settings, and attach as
text if present.
