Thanks for the reply.

The qt terminal for Cygwin works fine on Cygwin, if a patch is attached to
An exapmle snapshot of qt terminal is shown :

I will ask Yaakov Selkowitz (qt for cygwin maintainer to apply the patch)
As a reference, the patch is shown below

Yes. It's a bug wxWidget.  I could not find wxWidget maintainer in Cygwin
How I do know the maintainer?

Anyway I will paste wxt terminal and x11 terminal snapshots.

Do you mean build Cygwin's WxWidget without x11 libraries?
On macOS, WxWidget is built without X and uses macOS original graphics.
In principle one can build Wxwidget for Cygwin using windows native api 
like emacs-win32on Cygwin. 
I do not know that this is possible on wxwidget on Cygwin.
I will investigate.
