I just ran the new setup.exe a few weeks ago and haven't changed the
new Cygwin Terminal shortcut's properties.  These are the most
important ones.

        [Name:] Cygwin Terminal
        Target: C:\cygwin\bin\mintty.exe -i /Cygwin-Terminal.ico -
        Start in: [empty]
        Shortcut key: None
        Run: Normal window
        [Icon:] C:\cygwin\Cygwin-Termina.ico
