I've heard that the value of the CYGWIN environment variable 'tty' will
be unsupported for the next release of cygwin. I use emacs a lot from within
cygwin, and if not CYTWIN=tty is set prior to starting bash, the control-c
character outputs control-g. C-c, c-x is therefore wrongly interpreted
by emacs. Is there other ways to get emacs works as expected, if the
variable is removed?
The problem only occurs in a Windows console, such as the one you get by
using the Cygwin desktop shortcut. Use a different terminal emulator,
such as mintty, instead.
