Thomas, thanks for clearing that matter up.
I can confirm that "-w max" seems to work perfectly for me.

For reference, my complete procedure now is to first open the cygwin terminal from Start --> All Programs --> Cygwin --> Cygwin64 Terminal using Run As Administrator.  Then execute this line in it:

    chere -i  -e "Bash (Cygwin) Here"  -s bash  -t mintty -o "-w max"  -f
(The Run As Administrator and -f being needed to overwrite previous register entries.)
