A replicable bug is a dead bug. All thatâs needed is for someone to spend the time to chase it down.
My interest stopped with replicating the bug. I have no skin in the game beyond that. I donât use anything but mintty these days, except when forced, and donât use Cygwin or Windows enough to miss tabs when I canât use an OS where the native terminal emulator has them.

Perhaps SuperPutty would work for you:
It claims to run putty as a subprocess, providing tabs and scp support on top of it. Since mintty is a fork of putty, it might be a drop-in replacement, or an easy hack if not.
It appears to be written in C#, so I doubt it would be allowed to incorporate this code into mintty itself, though.
