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.
