DOS pause command hangs in batch files

Hi all

I use some batch (*.bat/*.cmd) files for my work.

I usually work from within cygwin/mintty

Last year (i.e. from June 2021),
"pause" command (from DOS era) hangs
the batch file, until ^C is pressed.

Lately pressing ^C does nothing, and
I have to kill the mintty process
from task-manager.

This happens only when the batch file
is started from mintty. Not from cmd.
