Ah, thank you. That was the clue that I needed.
For those also having this problem:
mintty.exe -o "KeyFunctions=c:break" -o CtrlExchangeShift=true -
will propagate Ctrl-C to the non-native apps and kill them, imitating the behavior of 3.0.X Cygwin.
Now that I have played with this for a while, I am thinking that I like the new behavior better and I have assigned a new key to specifically kill native Windows programs instead letting the Ctrl-C do all the work (I am using Alt-F5 to do this).
