Problem: the shortcuts have the classic Cygwin icon whereas the
resulting terminal window has the mintty (nÃe Konsole) icon. Worse, on
Windows 7 at least, the Cygwin icon also appears in the taskbar. It
needs to be the same icon throughout.
That raises the obvious question: which one? I vote for mintty's, but
of course I'm biased. I don't think the classic Cygwin icon is fit for
purpose anymore, because of its jagged lines and because the black 'C'
is invisible on dark backgrounds.
