cygwin 3.1 pseudo console in PTY and break/ctrl-c handling

With Cygwin version 3.0.7-1, crtl-c kills native apps that are started from the shell, For example, starting notepad in the foreground from bash would be kill by a ctrl-c.
With Cygwin version 3.1.2-1, crtl-c DOES NOT kill native apps that are started from the shell,
Can I restore this behavior?
mintty -o "CA+F12:break" =====> ctrl-alt-F12 causes a break and kills notepad
mintty -o "c:break" =====> ctrl-shift-c causes a break and kills notepad
mintty -o "C+c:break" =====> FAIL -- ctrl-c kills native apps but notepad is not affected
mintty -o "CA+c:break" =====> FAIL -- ctrl-alt-c kills native apps but notepad is not affected
These tests show that the 'break' signal can be propagated from mintty but is not for the ctrl-c case.
I am guessing that this behavior is from the pty handing but I have not dug into this code or installed winpty.
Is all this documented somewhere that I could not find?
