Issue repeats even now, but now i discovered that's not Cygwin issue.

Very often, when inserting text from Windows clipboard into "Cygwin
Bash Shell". Things work like characters are being insert, but they're
not displayed in windows.
And sometimes it does such when i do keyboard input.

Other applications that use Windows "text window" interface, behave similarly.
