Using Cygwin 64 on Windows 7:

In a bash or zsh running inside mintty, pressing Control-C has no

This can be verified in two ways:

Ronald, does it happen that you start mintty from a Cygwin console window?
In that case, it might be the same problem I had reported myself a few months ago:
I have analysed this a little bit further; the problem as I see it happens in cygwin 1.7.32 but does not happen in cygwin 1.7.10 (I could try to narrow that down with the cygwin time machine...). In addition, if I compile the current version of mintty in cygwin 1.7.10, the problem does not occur which makes me quite sure it's not a mintty problem although (as I had written) it does not seem to happen with xterm.
